The Benefits of Outsourcing DSE Assessments

Expertise and Experience

Outsourcing your DSE assessments to a specialised provider like DSE Assessments Ltd means tapping into a wealth of experience. Our dedicated Account Managers offer personalised advice and guidance, ensuring you receive assessments of the highest quality. We have in-depth knowledge of Health and Safety Regulations, including guidance provided by the HSE (Health and Safety Executive), ensuring compliance with the latest standards.

Time and Resource Savings

By outsourcing DSE assessments, you save valuable time and resources. Your HR Team, Facilities Manager, Office Manager, or anyone in your organisation that has responsibility for HSE Compliance can focus on their core responsibilities, while we take care of the DSE assessments. This can be especially beneficial for medium-sized businesses with 100-250 employees, as it streamlines the process and allows for efficient compliance.


Our services cover various settings, including offices, hot desking, working from home, and hybrid working environments. We offer both onsite and online assessments, adapting to your specific needs. This flexibility ensures you get a tailored solution that’s 100% right for your organisation.

The Benefits of DSE Assessor Training

In-House Expertise

Training your existing staff as DSE assessors empowers your organisation with in-house expertise. This not only saves costs associated with outsourcing but also ensures ongoing compliance and assessment capabilities.

Tailored Approach

Our DSE Assessor Training courses are designed to align with HSE guidance. Your staff will learn how to effectively assess DSE requirements and adapt the assessments to your organisation’s unique needs. This tailored approach enhances your ability to maintain a healthy and productive working environment.

Empowering your Team

For anyone managing DSE requirements within your organisation, DSE Assessor Training is an opportunity to enhance their skills and take on a more proactive role in employee well-being. This, in turn, can boost employee satisfaction and productivity.
