The Display Screen Equipment (DSE) Regulations require an employer to make an assessment of all computer workstations to identify and reduce the risks to health of the individuals using them. Information and training on the safe use of DSE must also be provided to all users. The 'user', and the 'workstation' are defined below. These requirements are applicable to all those Oxford Brookes University employees who are recognised as DSE users. With the exception of vision assessment and correction, these requirements are also applicable to the self-employed and employees of other organisations using Oxford Brookes' workstations.
This Health and Safety Notice should be read and understood by any member of staff who uses DSE together with those responsible for implementing this guidance.
