Having the ability to see clearly is vital for most workplace tasks, be they office or production based. However, some people do not regularly attend an optician for many reasons:
This puts them at greater risk of eye strain and accidents due to the steady deterioration in visual acuity that affects us all as we get a little more senior. These changes are so gradual that people adapt to them and it is only when someone else comments about how far away the person is holding a paper or when the person experiences difficulty seeing road signs or night driving, that it begins to dawn that there may be a problem.
These cover 3 main areas:
Vision testing can be carried out for DSE users at your premises using specialist vision screening equipment. All that is required is a quiet room, an electrical socket, a table, two chairs, vision screener and finally employees who have brought their corrective spectacles with them, if required. Testing takes 5 to 7 minutes per person.
Employees will be notified of their results and in the case of abnormal results they will be given a copy and advised to see an optician.
Finally, employers will receive the results, provided that the employee has consented for the release of this information.
