The VDU/DSE requirements of Chapter 5 of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Regulations 2007 are not applicable to laptops.
Regulation 7(d) states, "this Chapter does not apply to...portable display screen equipment not in prolonged use at a workstation." So it's recommended to connect a laptop to a keyboard and separate monitor. After it's set up accordingly, then a work station can be evaluated to document if it adheres to the requirements of the Display Screen Equipment Regulation.
Other temporary arrangements of a laptop workstation should be evaluated to check how the laptop is used and to determine potential risks. Nevertheless, the user should refrain from working directly on the laptop for extended hours.
A suitable workstation that's subjected to an ergonomic assessment and been improved includes: a monitor adjusted to the correct height, separate keyboard , document holder, footrest, adjustable seat, and improved lighting.
