We're proud to announce the release of the HTML5 version of our free VDU Risk Assessment.
Why HTML5?
All the screens are full size 1920x1080 making for much easier viewing and operation. It now looks and feels a lot better.
We've also directly included the application as part of our main website where a bunch of other free workplace training resources may be found.
The site averaged nearly a million page views last year, and has consistently increased year on year, thanks to you for sharing and paying it forward.
Updated 2015

Our VDU risk assessment has been recently been updated to meet current health and safety regulations.

Averaging over 1000 visits every month, this free service has been used by countless businesses looking to fulfil their health and safety obligations.

And they get proof that they've done so, with each participant being able to print off documentation stating that they've completed the assessment.

All kinds of companies use it - both large and small. It's a great tool for any business that needs their staff to use a computer in a safe and efficient way.

What does our VDU Risk Assessment include?

After a brief introduction, the VDU Risk Assessment educates the user on the following topics:

The Workstation

How the desk environment should be - such as chair positioning and working posture.


Bad light can cause screen glare, which can lead to headaches and eyesight issues.

Environmental Issues

A clean and tidy work environment is essential for the health and well being of your staff.

Work Organisation

Drawers, cupboards and other storage locations should be utilised to their fullest.

Health Issues

If a member of staff has a pre-existing medical condition, then it's important that considerations are made with regards to their working environment.

Working at Home

A home office can be just as dangerous as a company office.

Once these have been read, a test follows that will ensure your employee has taken in all of the relevant information.

As long as the test has been completed correctly, then the user will be taken to a screen that shows proof of completion.

This can be printed out and shown to any would be inspectors.

The benefits of using our VDU Risk Assessment

The main benefit is that it's free.

Another benefit is that it's often updated, with the latest version being its fifth installment.

It was originally produced and designed by Studio Rossiter with the help of safety professionals from Pilkington glass - so it has always been of a professional industry standard.

Which is why so many businesses still use it today.
