Assessing Display Screen Equipment

Approved by IIRSM

This course is aimed at companies that employ users of display screen equipment, or DSE as it’s often called, and is intended to be completed by those assessing the DSE setups of employees.

DSE is a term that covers a wide range of equipment. If equipment like this is not set up correctly, users are at increased risk of certain disorders.

A ‘user’ regularly uses display screen equipment for a significant part of their everyday work. In practice, if you use display screen equipment continuously for more than one hour daily, you’re a ‘user’.

So, what do we mean by display screen equipment?

The first thing most people think of is a computer monitor. But that’s not the only thing it refers to. Display screen equipment could also mean laptops, tablet PCs, televisions, smartphones, CNC control pads, portable diagnostic screens or equipment containing cathode ray tubes or CRTs. The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations contain special DSE safety directives. Both employers and employee users have responsibilities under the legislation.

This course fulfils your statutory training obligations and covers, among other things, the correct way to set up and use your display screen equipment safely. Reducing the risk of work-related conditions.
