The Importance of Correct Workstation Setup

A proper workstation setup is crucial not only for maintaining employees' physical and mental health but also for enhancing their productivity and job satisfaction. Ergonomic considerations, such as adjusting chairs and desks, correctly positioning monitors, and placing keyboards, are fundamental in minimising health risks associated with prolonged DSE use. By investing in optimal workstation setups, you're investing in your employees' well-being, their success, and the success of your business.

DSE Health & Safety Law

Employers are required by law to ensure that staff who use computers are trained in their safe use and have their workstation assessed for risks to their health. Staff are also required by law to cooperate with the employers process.
