Make sure you are working safely with display screen equipment (DSE)

All employers must protect workers from the health risks of working with display screen equipment (DSE).

Incorrect use of DSE or poorly designed workstations or work environments can lead to pain in necks, shoulders, backs, arms, wrists and hands, as well as fatigue and eye strain. 

This guidance covers a range of topics including:
workingstations and assesments
eyesigh testing

In addition, there’s guidance on what you and your workers need to know about working with DSE from home, as well as a short video and practical tips on maintaining a good posture

Health and safety is vital for all seasonal workers

Workers are as likely to have an accident in the first six months at a workplace as during the whole of the rest of their working life.

With many seasonal jobs being filled at this time of year, it is important that employers protect the health and safety of gig economy, agency and temporary workers. 

The website has guidance to help users and suppliers of agency and temporary workers understand their health and safety responsibilities. 

If you are an agency or temporary worker then your health and safety is protected by law and employment businesses (agencies) have a duty to make sure they follow it.

Now is the time to get gas checks

HSE recommends that now is the time to get gas appliances checked.

​​Getting household gas appliances and pipes checked in summer can ensure your home is safe while also helping to keep bills lower in winter.

Homeowners should get all gas appliances (boilers, cookers and fires), flues and pipework regularly maintained and serviced every year by a qualified engineer listed on the Gas Safe Register. ​

The domestic gas website has useful guidance, advice and resources, while you can also receive all the latest news and updates by subscribing to the domestic gas ebulletin.
