DSE Risk Assessment


TIRA has been designed to be modular, in this we mean if you learn how to input records into the DSE module the principles are appropriately the same for all the other risk assessment types covered by the application.  This will greatly increase the speed at which new user can become accustomed to and prolific in managing their risk assessment responsibilities via TIRA.




TIRA initially generates a unique reference ID which may be changed now or later to match your own referencing convention.


Across the top of the DSE risk assessment input form is the core assessment details, these details are shown regardless of what element of the risk assessment the user is entering, this as a reminder of the individual being assessed.


Header Tab


DSE Reference No: Unique identification allocated to the risk assessment (duplicate Ref IDs are not permitted)

Location / Site: Identifies where the DSE risk assessment applies to

Staff Being Assessed: Record the employee being DSE assessed (this information is repeated in the top left of the input form)

Assessed / Reviewed By: Records the details of the assessor or person responsible for verifying the DSE assessment findings


Date: DSE assessment undertaken on


Time: DSE assessment undertaken at


Review Date: Date the DSE risk assessment should be reviewed for accuracy and continuing suitability.


Review Not Required: Prevents the programme from placing the DSE assessment on the overdue remainder report after its review date is past.  Typically used where staff are on short-term contracts and unlikely to still be employed when the DSE review is due.


Navigation Bar: (bottom left) Provides the following ways to navigate through records;


First Record

Previous Record

Number of Record within Record-set

Next Record

Last Record

Filter Box

Search Box


Duplicate Record: Will replicate an exact copy of the DSE risk assessment and allocate a unique and temporary reference ID. (see duplicate record for further details)


The tabs across the DSE input form are split into logical groups of questions that would be asked during a DSE risk assessment.  The layout my change slightly from tab to tab but the principal is then same throughout.  Questions on the left, followed by a yes / no / na and blank response and any relevant comments,


Tip: When in the yes / no / na field the response can be toggle between the 3 possible answers by


a) double clicking the mouse whilst hovering over the field,

b) pressing the space-bar whilst the field has the focus i.e is highlighted yellow.


Header Page Button:  Quickly return you to the header details page from any tab


Jump to Actions Button: Quickly takes you to the actions tab for entering any concerns found during the DSE risk assessment


Back to Previous Button: Quickly returns you back to the tab you were working in when you clicked on the Jump to Actions Button.  This allows user to quickly flick between the findings page and the actions tab for easily entering concerns without losing their place within the DSE input form.


Data entered into any fields in the DSE assessment input pages is replicated into a professionally designed DSE risk assessment report.


The DSE risk assessment asks question to covers the following areas;


The Display Screen

The Keyboard

The Work Desk / Work Surface
