As every DSE software provider manages risk assessing staff differently it is here that potential buyers can make the greatest return on their investment or just have a system that creates work rather than reduce it.

ErgoWize is the most effective DSE risk assessment software currently available with the following benefits:

User risk resolutionThe ErgoWize Risk Assessment can be configured so that potential resolutions to user concerns pop up during the questionnaire, reducing the need for any follow-up action. Organisations using ErgoWize have on average reduced the amount of time spent resolving risk assessment issues by between 60% and 90% compared with their previous process. This includes a number of customers who have upgraded to ErgoWize from an alternative solution.

With much of the risk being dealt with by the end user, Health & Safety staff can focus on those DSE users with outstanding concerns.

Variable risk weightings

ErgoWize incorporates a simple risk weighting to each assessment question; high, medium or low. This helps ensure that staff requiring more urgent attention are seen quicker as Health & Safety staff can prioritise their workload. These weightings can easily be adjusted by the administrators within the O-LAS management system.

Customisable assessments

We have designed the ErgoWize Risk Assessment so that customers can adapt and amend the questionnaire at any time, even post roll-out, to reflect changing environments, technologies and the unique nature of their own operation. The risk assessment is dynamic in that filter questions are used so that users can skip any irrelevant questions. For example, users without laptops would not have to complete the section that relates to this equipment.

ErgoWize Ultra includes specialist risk assessments specifically for Homeworkers and for New & Expectant Mothers.

ErgoWize Ultra Overview

On average customers using ErgoWize reduce the amount of time spent following up on DSE risk assessment issues by between 60% and 90% compared with their previous manual process or even other DSE software solutions. This massive time saving means that staff who were responsible for following up on DSE related issues, can dedicate more time to their other work related responsibilities.


ErgoWize Remote Managed Services

Whilst ErgoWize has been designed to make the system administration as easy as possible, some organisations prefer us to manage some or all of these tasks for them, either initially or on an ongoing basis.This does free up Health & Safety staff to concentrate fully on resolving the DSE related risks.


DSE Regulations, risk assessment – Ergonomics, Workstation DSE/VDU software training

EssentialSkillz software is a very effective learning tool that has proved extremely valuable in training our employees across Europe.


Introduction to DSE, the DSE Regulations & Compliance

The regulations also state that staff should be re-assessed if there is reason to suspect that the previous assessment is no longer valid or if there has been a significant change to the workstation since the last assessment took place. The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations ensure that all display screen equipment users are risk assessed.


DSE Training

Staff who know how to identify DSE issues and adjust their workstation correctly are less likely to develop work related upper limb disorders, which means less absenteeism and a reduction in the risk of litigation for the organisation. ErgoWize is the perfect way to deliver DSE Training as users are in the right place to make any small adjustments required to their workstation as they learn.


Tracking and Reporting

The traditional paper trail is elimiated as individual employee training and risk assessment records, along with follow-up action taken to resolve any concerns raised are saved centrally for easy compliance management. ErgoWize offers the lowest cost of ownership in the market place as any ongoing customisation of the training and risk assessment can be carried out by a customer's own Health & Safety staff.
