Eyestrain, back pain and RSI are just some of the health problems associated with using display screen equipment (DSE) for long periods of time without a suitable set-up. We train people to become DSE assessors so that they can identify workstation issues within their organisations, and know what to do about them. Having internal DSE assessors on-hand is an efficient and cost-effective way — not only of meeting health and safety requirements, but of keeping everyone comfortable, productive and injury-free at their desks.

This DSE assessment foundation course gives absolute beginners the skills, knowledge and confidence to conduct workstation assessments in line with DSE regulations.

Following completion of your training, you will have access to our dedicated DSE advice team who will be available to answer your questions about ergonomics, positioning and equipment, as well as generally supporting you on an ongoing basis with your DSE assessing.

* Subject to COVID-19 measures.
