In accordance with Section 2, para. 4, of the Labour Protection Act (ArbeitnehmerInnenschutzgesetz, ASchG), a work- station is defined as the spatial area in which employees perform their work. After workplaces (or construction sites) and workrooms, a workstation is the smallest unit addressed. The requirements to be met by VDU workstations are defined in Part Six of the Labour Protection Act as well as in the Regulation relating to Visual Display Terminal Work (Bildschirmarbeitsverordnung-BSV). The requirements vary depending on whether the workstations are located in workplaces, in buildings, outdoors, on construction sites or in remote locations.
