The Display Screen Equipment Awareness course focuses on users of display screen equipment (DSE). A ‘user’ is defined as anyone who regularly uses display screen equipment in their normal duties for a significant part of their day. In practice, if you use display screen equipment continuously for more than one hour a day, then you’re a ‘user’.
What does display screen equipment mean?
The initial thing people think of is a computer monitor. But that’s not the only thing that’s covered. In this ever changing mobile world it 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 specific directives covering
DSE safety. Both employers and employee “users” have responsibilities under the legislation.
This course fulfils your statutory training obligations and among other things covers, the correct way to set up and use your display screen equipment safely. This is with the main aim of reducing work related conditions.
The course is made up of 8 modules with questions at the end of each module.
