DSE/Workstation Assessment Referral Procedure

19 February 2016

We have recently reviewed the referral process for display screen equipment (DSE)/Workstation assessment. 
 
For general DSE/Workstation queries, local DSE assessors remain the first point of contact. When further advice is required following a workstation assessment, referral forms are no longer required and staff can contact the Safety and Health Adviser for their area directly. 
 
Staff with a specific underlying health condition which could affect them when using display screen equipment should contact their line manager and local HR representative to organise a referral to Occupational Health. A copy of the DSE assessment form should be submitted together with the referral and actions already taken clearly outlined in the referral.
 
We would also like to take the opportunity to remind you that the ergonomic loan equipment form can now be completed online and to inform you that the DSE/Workstation assessment form and DSE assessor handbook are currently under review. 
 
For further information, please see our DSE/Workstation assessment section and the DSE/Workstation assessment flowchart or contact us at bristol-safety@bristol.ac.uk .
