Become a Remtek Workplace Ergonomic Partner
Do you want to improve employee job satisfaction and productivity?
Research shows that productivity improves when staff are as comfortable, happy and as safe as possible in their daily working lives.
It is vital to make employees feel valued and taken care of but more importantly than that under HSE guidelines it is an employer’s responsibility to protect employees from health risks.
This is where our professional ergonomics specialists can help you. Whether you need expert guidance to improve health and wellbeing, a DSE assessment or advice on HSE requirements we can help.
HSE: Working safely with display screen equipment
The HSE explains that “As an employer, you must protect your workers from the health risks of working with display screen equipment (DSE), such as PCs, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations apply to workers who use DSE daily, for continuous periods of an hour or more. We describe these workers as ‘DSE users’. The regulations don’t apply to workers who use DSE infrequently or only use it for a short time.”
By law employers must:
- complete a DSE workstation assessment
- reduce risks, including making sure workers take breaks from DSE work or do something different
- provide an eye test if a worker asks for one
- provide training and information for workers
Still confused about what is required from you?
That’s where we come in!
As mentioned, if your employees use display screen equipment (DSE) daily, as part of their normal work, continuously for an hour or more, you must complete a workstation assessment. As part of our Remtek Workplace package we offer:
- One-off DSE workplace assessments
- Ongoing support for your employees provided for a monthly fee based on employee numbers
Why businesses are partnering with Remtek Workplace
Unlike other providers, all our assessments are face to face unless specified by the client (such as if they are shielding).
Assessments are carried out in an employee’s main work environment by one of our dedicated assessment team.
All of our team are qualified DSE assessors with many years experience assessing complex cases through the Disabled Student Allowance. Our extensive product knowledge ensures that the most suitable solutions for employee’s needs are addressed.
The benefits of a Workplace Needs Assessment with Remtek Workplace include:
- Increased productivity and performance once strategies are implemented
- Increased understanding & communication between employees and managers, and wider teams
- Increased job satisfaction in the role
- Increased wellbeing at work
Here’s what our Head of Ergonomics, Chris Barlow had to say:
“We know from experience that working in an awkward posture is not an efficient way for people to work. Our process supports and encourages employees to work in a comfortable and safe way that causes less fatigue and discomfort, and helps them to work more efficiently and more accurately.
We’re here to guide employers through the process and help them to help their employees.”
