Health and safety: Deal with an employee's request for an eye and eyesight test

When to use this health and safety workflow

Use this health and safety workflow to manage the legal and practical issues that arise when you receive a request from an employee or someone who is to become an employee for an eye and eyesight test.

Eligible employees who use display screen equipment at work are, on request, entitled to be provided with an appropriate eye and eyesight test. The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992 oblige employers to pay for such tests and, where necessary, for the basic cost of optical appliances.
