Pregnancy And Workstation (DSE) Risk Assessment


Display screen equipment (DSE) refers to any work equipment which has a screen that displays information. Surveys have found that high proportions of DSE workers report aches, pains or eye discomfort.

The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations aim to protect the health of people who work with DSE. The regulations were introduced because DSE has become one of the commonest kinds of work equipment.

For expectant mothers, the HSE recommends a specific risk assessment depending on the role, the person’s health and the stage of the pregnancy. A large number of employees using DSE can be made more comfortable, and therefore more productive, by taking just a few simple precautions.
