The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations came into force on 1 January 1993 (some minor changes were made in 2002) and seek to protect the health of workers by reducing risks from VDU work.
Whilst many office premises appear to be low risk when compared to other workplaces, there are a significant number of workers who may be at risk of developing musculoskeletal related conditions such as repetitive strain injury (RSI). Whilst these conditions are not life threatening, they can cause discomfort, result in staff being off sick and in some cases mean that an employee may not be able to undertake their normal duties.
