Is investment in an Online Dse application a sensible investment?
It has been reported that 2 beauty therapists working for Virgin Atlantic have been compensated £300,000 as a result of repetitive strain injuries (RSI). the injuries were apparently as a result of massaging lst class passengers flying with the airline.
The initial expenses involved in seeking advice and then implementing a health and safety management system are often bulked at by business owners and dismissed as too expensive. This perception is misguided and businesses should consider, not only the cost of the application and management of the system, but also the money that will be saved as a result of the improvements.
For an average company who decides not to pay for DSE Online, one claim from a member of staff who has a repetitive strain injury due to DSE use, could pay for the system 5 times over. Show staff that you care and show the courts that you have done what is reasonable. For as little as £4.00 per member of staff per year, DSE online is a sensible investment for businesses large and small.
