An organisational risk assessment for Common Platform was developed in consultation with the PCS trade union and with input from HMCTS’ Governance & Assurance Team.

We have in place arrangements to assess and manage Display Screen Equipment (DSE) risks. These were in place before Common Platform’s introduction and the system does not require new arrangements to be created to deal with such risks. Where we can meaningfully assess and manage risks specific to a site, our existing corporate templates enable us to do so, enabling us to ‘score’ and manage that risk appropriately.

These arrangements are judged to be suitable, sufficient, and compliant with our legal obligations.
