VDU Auditing

VDU AuditingVDU auditing

The VDU Regulations state that employers must complete VDU auditing on all employees who may be VDU users.

Within the regulations a user is anyone habitually using a VDU as a large part of their normal work. The regulations set out a series of duties which will be placed upon the employer. Principally they are as follows:

  • Analyse VDU workstations and take steps to correct any risks found.
  • Assess the risks to the operator’s health from the use of the workstation, and record this assessment.
  • Ensure that all new workstations meet the requirements.
  • Ensure that all existing workstations meet the requirements.
  • Train ‘users’ in VDU use.
  • Provide ‘users’ with appropriate rest breaks.
  • Entitles ‘users’ to eye and eyesight tests where appropriate.

It is the duty of the employer to produce an assessment of VDU use. Such a process can take time and may require specialist advice.
