||This directive states the rules that apply to workers that often spend most of their time using a VDU. It came into force 1 Jan. 1995, and complies with European Union Directive 90/270/EEC (CIS 90-1069). Employers are responsible for compliance with the directive. Work planning should ensure that workers do other tasks than VDU work during the day. The planning should be done in cooperation with the workers and their representatives. An evaluation of the physical and psychological risks should be performed. Man-machine interactions (software, system performance) should be assessed. General requirements concerning the screen, keyboard, table and chair are given. The environment should be appropriate. Workers should be offered a visual test before taking up work with the VDU, and regularly thereafter. The employer must provide suitable visual aids if the test has identified the need for it.
