Book now

Improve comfort and productivity across your organisation by training staff to carry out DSE assessments internally.

Training during COVID-19

During the current pandemic, we will be delivering this course remotely via a virtual classroom. We will present the same high quality educational content you expect from our Posturite trainers but in a different format. A remote learning approach eliminates the infection risk a face-to-face course presents, and can offer greater flexibility during the current climate.

The course will run in the following format:

Part 1. Pre course study: Documentation will be sent out for delegates to read ahead of the course (approx 3 hours study time).

Part 2. Group web training: Delivered by the trainer, the delegates and trainers will be able to interact with each other live and participate in learning activities (3 hours including breaks).

Part 3. Post course study: Delegates will be expected to have completed some assessments following part 2, and have before and after photographs of at least two workstations. The trainer will follow up with each of the delegates approximately 10 days after part 2 so they can talk through and answer questions on the assessments with the trainer.

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 Foundation Course gives absolute beginners the skills, knowledge and confidence to conduct workstation assessments in line with DSE regulations.
