Display Screen Equipment


  

The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992 require employers to minimise the risks in VDU work by ensuring that workplaces and jobs are well designed. They apply to all staff who use VDUs as a significant part of their work, including the self-employed and those who work from home.

Employers have to:

  • Analyse workstations, and assess and reduce risks 
  • Ensure workstations meet minimum requirements 
  • Plan work so there are breaks or changes of activity 
  • On request arrange eye tests, and provide spectacles if special ones are needed 
  • Provide health and safety training and information

The Health and Safety Executive publishes guidance booklets to help you meet the requirements of the regulations, for information about these, and other Health and Safety issues, contact:
