Fact:“Employers with more than 5 staff are required by law to undertake regular risk assessment of all employees who use display screen equipment (DSE) for more than one hour at a time in their working day”

It is a true fact of life that many people spend a substantial proportion of their working lives using Display Screen Equipment, be it a VDU, terminal or desktop computer. Nevertheless, using such equipment is not without its risks.

Therapy-First Physiotherapy has considerable experience and expertise in carrying out both individual and group workstation assessments to comply with the EEC regulations. The Display Screen Equipment (DSE) Regulations came into force in 1993 to implement European Directive No. 90/270/EEC of 29 May 1990, on minimum safety and health requirements for work with DSE.


Therapy-First Physiotherapy delivers workstation assessments and advice for individuals and for companies with employees who are suffering with particular work-related conditions (such as RSI, back pain, joint pain)or returning to work following time off forwork-related conditions or spinal surgery.
