Barbour’s NEW free content

Display Screen Equipment: Employee Factsheet

Home Working: Directors Briefing

Fire Detection and Alarm Systems: Barbour Guide
The term DSE covers not just PCs but also laptops, tablets and smartphones. Some users of DSE experience aches and pains in their hands, wrists, arms, neck and shoulders following long periods of DSE work. This Employee Factsheet takes you through what you can do to avoid these problems, whether in the office or working from home. Home working is no longer a temporary fix. Employers have a duty to protect the health and safety of all employees, including homeworkers. This Directors Briefing takes you through assessing the risks, common hazards, working from home in exceptional circumstances, employer responsibilities and more. Fire detection and alarm systems serve to enhance safety and reduce loss by detecting fire and enabling an alarm signal to be generated so that emergency actions may be taken. Our Barbour Guide takes you through the key elements, the legal requirements, essential information and key actions.
