Remote Worker Assessment

Under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, all employers have a duty to ensure that, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of employees are protected.

For employees who use display screen equipment daily, for one hour or more at a time, this includes assessment of the workstation and equipment to help protect them from potential health risks. These risks can include pain in the neck, shoulders, back, arms, wrists and hands, as well as fatigue and eye strain.

However, there are an increasing number of remote workers, working from home or from satellite locations away from their main office, which can present challenges for employers in completing the necessary assessments. That’s why Bureau Veritas has developed a Remote Worker Assessment, available via video link.

Remote support for remote workers

As experts in testing, inspection and certification, Bureau Veritas offers an experienced team of occupational health and safety specialists.

Our Remote Worker Assessment, developed in line with the Health & Safety Executive’s own Display Screen Equipment (DSE) workstation assessment, covers the display screen, mouse, keyboard, furniture and working environment, including lighting and heating. It also covers mental wellbeing, taking into account additional pressures faced by remote workers.

A Bureau Veritas specialist will arrange a convenient time with all applicable workers individually to undertake the assessment via video link. The client will then be provided with a report which highlights any employees who are deemed high-risk.
