Display Screen Equipment

All staff & students who work with Display Screen Equipment (DSE) – e.g., PC monitors, all-in-one PC screens, and also portable systems such as laptops and tablets- are required to complete a DSE assessment for their use in the workplace.

Should you also work the majority, or a significant minority, of your time from home, you should also complete a DSE assessment for your home workspace- please see the ‘working from home’ section for more guidance.

This assessment is completed using the RiskNet system; new staff and postgraduate students will receive an email invite from Safety Services to complete an online DSE self-assessment via RiskNet and a presentation about the DSE assessment process.

If a user’s DSE assessment suggest extra support is required, the Department’s DSE lead will be informed and they will contact the user for a face-to-face assessment of their DSE needs.

DSE related Health and Safety issues may also be brought directly to the attention of either the DSE lead or the Departmental Safety Officer.

More information may be found on the Safety Services DSE pages.
