The Safety Health and Welfare at Work Act requires that employees work
stations are assessed so that employers are compliant with the regulations.
This assessment should be carried out when there is a change in environment
or equipment and when work stations are moved. It is thus vital in current
times of change and home-based working to assess all employee workstations
to avoid injury from happening.
As an employer there are a number of duties set down it this regulation,
the key requirements are to:
Carry out an analysis or risk assessment of employee workstations
Provide information to employees in relation to measures which have been implemented
Provide training to employees in the use of workstations before commencing work with display screen equipment and whenever the organisation of the workstation is modified
Perform a further analysis or risk assessment where an employee transfers to a new workstation or significant new work equipment, change of equipment or new technology is introduced an an individual’s workstation
Ensure that the provision of an appropriate eye and eyesight test is made available to every employee
