A workstation refers to equipment which has a graphic or alphanumeric display screen and includes pcs, laptops, touch screens, tablets and similar devices along with the chair, desk, keyboard, mouse, peripherals and general working environment.
A workstation assessment is the same as a VDU assessment, a DSE assessment or a desk assessment. Anyone who is regularly using a display screen/computer at work should have one.
A workstation assessment is the ideal way to identify issues with the desk set-up. A basic or standard assessment is suitable for most people. Someone who is experiencing pain or who has specific need may consider an advanced or specialist assessment.
