DSE or Display Screen Equipment safety training highlights the correct posture and working position for people working at desks and with any type of display. Many medical conditions arise from incorrect posture and equipment positioning like neck/back problems
The HSE state on their website "As an employer, you must protect your workers from the health risks of working with display screen equipment (DSE), such as PCs, laptops, tablets and smartphones."
This course is designed to meet Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992 which is aimed at a worker who uses DSE daily, for an hour or more at a time and are classified by the HSE as ‘DSE users’.
If these hazards are not identified, serious medical conditions can arise. Learning how to prevent injury and work safe, will improve health and working conditions.
