Although telephones are not specifically covered under the HSE DSE checklist we believe that as an everyday tool used in the workplace these need to be considered.

Telephones are a constant requirement in an office and if incorrectly used they can cause injuries which are sometimes extreme and long-term.

1 Ensure that your telephone is in easy to reach and that you are able to adjust the volume to suit your needs

2 If you use the telephone frequently or are required to use the computer or complete other work at the same time then you will require a headset.

Often misuse of a telephone causes neck and shoulder complaints. By using this headset you will avoid tilting your head to one side and putting unnecessary strain on your neck and shoulders.
