riskNET: Workstation (DSE) assessment

Guidance for people completing a self-assessment of their workstation and managers who need to review their team's assessment.

A workstation assessment should be done when a new user starts work, when a substantial change is made to an existing workstation (or the way it is used) or if somebody is experiencing discomfort or pain. Assessments should be repeated at least every five years. 

Managers are responsible for ensuring that DSE assessments are carried out, monitored and reviewed, for their team members.
