Our obligations come from the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations:
If, after checking the chair and attempting to adjust it to suit the user, the chair remains unsuitable, consider whether there are any medical conditions that would need referral to Occupational Health and/or request a visit to the University Safety Office DSE room where a number of chairs are available for view. See below for contact details.
The DSE Room is currently based in the Physics Building, UP Campus. An appointment needs to make to visit, please contact:
Safety Office email firstname.lastname@example.org or call ext. 13401.
A small selection of DSE chairs as well as a limited range of copy holders, mice, desks, foot and wrist rests. The equipment is not available for loan as it belongs to the suppliers.
Both the person visiting the room and their DSE Assessor will receive information on the equipment the user has expressed an interest in purchasing, the prices and the mechanism for purchasing the equipment.
The school is responsible for the cost and the logistics of purchasing the equipment. The DSE Assessor is normally responsible for facilitating the purchase of DSE equipment but this is dependent on the local arrangements in their respective School.
It is appreciated that the opportunity to try chairs in the DSE room only allows the user a very short length of time to decide which feels most comfortable and supportive. Any item purchased from the approved supplier, can be returned within two weeks on safe or return. The user can then look for an alternative that better suits.
Overall, it is to coordinate their School's/Department's compliance with the DSE Regulations and the University's Safe Use of DSE Code of Practice.
