DSE training courses
As an employer, it is your responsibility to make sure everybody who works for you is using their computers, tablets, smartphones and laptops safely and correctly. Each year hundreds of thousands of people take sick leave for work-related MSDs, often caused by prolonged sitting, poor posture and making small, repetitive movements. Using display screen equipment unsafely can also cause fatigue, eye strain and other health complications.
Why is DSE training necessary?
Your precise responsibilities are outlined in the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992. However, to make sure that everybody in your business understands what these regulations mean, why they are in place and how they can be implemented, we have developed two specialist face-to-face training courses that promise to engage, educate and equip staff with the know-how to reduce DSE-related problems.
What DSE courses do you offer?
We offer two DSE courses:
- Display Screen Equipment Assessment Foundation – a course for beginners who wish to gain knowledge and skills relating to DSE
- Display Screen Equipment Assessment Post-Foundation – a course designed to update and increase existing DSE knowledge
Who would benefit from these courses?
DSE training will benefit anyone who uses computers, laptops, smartphones and other DSE regularly in the workplace. Line managers, health and safety professionals and HR personnel will find the post-foundation course particularly valuable as they’ll have the opportunity to discuss particular issues with a qualified health professional or ergonomist.
How are the courses structured?
Both our DSE courses take place over one day. Our course leaders can either come to your offices (ideal if you have a large group of people to train), or if there are just a few of you, you can attend one of our drop-in training days where we provide the date, location and refreshments.
