Description

ONLINE DSE TRAINING COURSE | Display screen equipment (DSE) if improperly used can lead to musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). MSDs are the most common work-related ill health in the UK.  Across the EU almost 50% of absences from work, over 3 days, result from MSDs.  

The effect can be long-term issues that impair quality of life.  Furthermore, overusing DSE can diminish mental health and cause eyestrain.  

Consequently, in 1992 DSE Regulations were introduced,  placing minor obligations upon employers, designed to mitigate these risks.  

One obligation is to provide information or training, such as this course, to each DSE user so they understand how to minimise risks.
