These assessments are conducted to ensure that the equipment and work environment are ergonomically designed and arranged to minimize the risk of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) and other health problems associated with prolonged use of display screens.

The assessment typically includes a review of the following elements:

  • Workstation layout: including the placement of the computer screen, keyboard, and mouse
  • Lighting conditions: to ensure that the screen is well lit and that the lighting is not causing glare or reflection
  • Posture: to make sure that employees are able to maintain a neutral, relaxed posture while using the equipment
  • Equipment: including the size, resolution, and contrast of the display screen, as well as the height and tilt of the screen
  • Work practices: including the duration of screen use, frequency of breaks, and type of tasks being performed.

Based on the findings of the assessment, recommendations may be made to improve the ergonomics of the work environment and reduce the risk of MSDs and other health problems associated with prolonged use of display screens. Workplace display screen assessments can help promote the health and well-being of employees and improve their productivity and comfort.
