Within each department there should be a nominated and trained DSE assessor who is able to help you with any problems you may have carrying out the assessment or to help guide you in regards to any changes to your DSE station set up you may need. We would also encourage you and your DSE assessor to discuss any issues identified with your manager.
If the person is experiencing significant musculoskeletal problems, after the DSE assessment, we would advise you refer the employee, with their consent, to Occupational Health for an assessment of their presenting symptoms and medical history to enable Occupational Health to advise you in regards to how support your employee in the work place.
Where appropriate, an Occupational Health Adviser (OHA) may visit the workplace to observe the individual's work activities and make recommendations with regards any necessary workplace modifications eg posture and/or work environment, and discuss these with the employee and their supervisor.
