Display Screen Equipment

Duration: 20 – 30 min

Regarding DSE training, the HSE website says: “The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992 apply to workers who use DSE daily, for an hour or more at a time. We describe these workers as ‘DSE users’. The regulations don’t apply to workers who use DSE infrequently or only use it for a short time.”

The DSE Users course includes an on-the-spot DSE risk assessment.

Employers have a duty to raise awareness among their employees concerning the health risks associated with the frequent use of desktop PCs, laptops, smartphones and tablets. Therefore DSE training – and risk assessment is necessary whether workers are at a fixed workstation, are mobile workers, home workers, or hot-desking.

Our training system allows the user to perform an on-the-spot assessment of their own workstation and also keeps a record of employees’ training.

This data is recorded to ensure that the employer has provided what is required of them and the employee does what is required of them.
