Visual-q has established a network of dedicated consultants, offering specialist services to help our clients improve the welfare of their employees whether they work from home, remote locations or a more conventional office environment.

Home or office DSE Assessment
DSE projects may include individual workstation risk assessments at an employee's home or at a central office location but in both cases the assessment will include a combination of observation, measurement and interview covering subjects including IT equipment, furniture, posture, environment, work routine. Training will be given on a one to one basis in aspects of health display screen equipment use and each user will be given a copy of HSE publication and a simple guide to setting up a workstation as an aide memoir. We will present 'signed off' assessment forms together with a comprehensive risk report, which collates risks and follow-up actions. If equipment or accessories are required we will recommend appropriate products and suppliers.

Fully Managed DSE Service
We can offer comprehensive DSE managed services to include home-office workers to companies who want us to provide a holistic approach to ergonomic risk management. Using either computer based HEALTHY WORKINGinternal link or our on-site assessment service as a base, additional levels of care can be introduced.
