Display Screen Equipment (DSE) Assessors Course
Display screen equipment (DSE) risk assessments are not just a legal requirement. If they are completed properly they can help reduce the musculoskeletal disorders, upper limb disorders, reduced concentration levels and other ill health effects that are symptomatic of time spent at poorly designed workstations. These issues all impact on overall productivity and absenteeism levels within an organisation.
The DSE Assessors course is aimed at those people who are tasked with developing and producing effective DSE assessments to cover the requirements of the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992. This course will cover how to assess workstations and implement controls to ensure that the workstation and working environment are satisfactory.
Delegates will explore the principles and recommendations explained in the HSE guidance document L26, Work with Display Screen Equipment.
The course will culminate in each delegate undertaking a DSE assessment and providing appropriate recommendations on safe set-up and usage. This could be either in a realistic workplace setting (if available) or a simulated training setting. This will be discussed with the client and course tutor prior to the session.
