Good Home Office Setup
How To Set Up a Good Home Office
Your home office should ideally be a separate space in your home that is suitable for the work being done. In an ideal world a room that can hold a desk and computer, better still if it has a door that can be closed to separate your work from home life.
Things To Consider Are:
Proper work height for your desk
Your space needs a desk or table that is at a good work height for you.
Proper monitor height
What are the health risks associated with DSE (Display Screen Equipment)?
Types of DSE examples include:
- TV screens
- CCTV screens
- Equipment display screens attached to machinery etc

Is your desk/table height right for you, does your seat put you in a safe working position? All this should be investigated to help minimise any risks from DSE working. A link to the HSE website can be found below where you can print off a DSE risk assessment form. This is a quick-fire guide to optimise your home or office work station.
