Employers must ensure that employees can use their workstation safety, for example by providing training in the best use of the equipment to avoid health problems. They must also give information to employees about health and safety using VDUs, including the steps they have taken to comply with the regulations. Electronic Communications Act (2000) This facilitates electronic communication and electronic data storage. This means that it helps the company to store data electronically. * They could use portable PDA's to collect customers' signatures and information can be stored on it whilst on the road.
