Also included in the VDU Assessment is a detailed examination of the surrounding workspace(s) as well as the work station(s) using meters to measure light, temperature, humidity and noise levels and review of the results is also included.

A detailed VDU Assessment report is submitted to your company and the employee is entitled to a copy of this report.
