A Display Screen Equipment (DSE) assessment is a process used to evaluate the ergonomic risk factors associated with using a computer or other device with a display screen, such as a laptop, desktop, or smartphone. The purpose of a DSE assessment is to identify any potential issues that could cause discomfort or injury to the user and to make recommendations for how to address those issues.
DSE assessments are typically conducted by a trained professional, such as an ergonomist, who will observe the user as they work and assess the ergonomic factors that could be contributing to discomfort or risk of injury. These factors may include the height and angle of the display screen, the position of the keyboard and mouse, the amount of light in the work environment, and other factors that could affect the user's comfort and productivity.
Based on the results of the assessment, the ergonomist may make recommendations for changes to the user's workstation setup or work habits to reduce the risk of discomfort or injury. These recommendations may include changes to the user's posture, the use of ergonomic equipment or accessories, or the implementation of breaks or other strategies to reduce the risk of repetitive strain injuries.
