There is no UK regulation that says there is a maximum amount a user should or can be expected to sit using a screen for their work.

The UK health and Safety Executive (HSE) have stipulated that there is no maximum limit to how long a person can be asked to use screens and computers as part of their job. Instead it provides a number of guidelines so assist users to complete their job duties.

This dispels the myth that people spend “too long” on screen. Regular breaks are recommended, but more importantly, correct posture, regular eye tests, appropriate eye wear (spectacles or contact lenses) are the actions to take.

The following documents are a good starting point from a legislation point of view.
