SC25 - Summary
06 Dec 2010



Code summary





  • Head-aches
  • Backache
  • Upper limb pain and disorders

Roles affected

  • Virtually all STFC staff,temporary workers and tenants.


The widespread use of computers in the STFC means that hazards arising from the incorrect set up of DSE and workstations can apply to virtually everyone.

The code requires that SHE Group provide specialist advice to managers and staff, and gives line managers the responsibility for ensuring that all their staff undertake:

  • DSE user training - now available on-line, and
  • a DSE Self Assessment of their workstation – also on line in SHE Assur​e – when setting up a new workstation, when the workstation changes significantly or when a problem is suspected.
