Many employers and employees are completely unaware of the impact on health that a poorly arranged work station can have.
A poorly equipped and arranged work station is a major contributing factor in the development of many work-related upper limb disorders (WRULDs). Conditions can be both short and long term but in most cases cause a lot of avoidable pain, discomfort and stress. Other associated symptoms include temporary eyestrain and headaches, and fatigue/stress.
The hazards associated with DSE work stations must, therefore, be properly assessed so that they are adequately equipped and adjustable to suit the user’s needs.
As an employee, you share the responsibility to keep people safe at work. That means undergoing relevant training and ensuring that rules are followed.
