What if I use a laptop?

If you use a laptop for more than one hour a day and/or on a regular basis as part of your work routine, well then DSE regulations will apply to you, and therefore a laptop on its own is not considered as suitable equipment, this course will detail the requirements for laptop users.

Why Do a DSE Awareness Course?

It is a legal requirement for all employees who work on a computer for more than one hour a day and/or on a regular basis to be provided with awareness training that covers the law, setting up your equipment and the health effects of incorrect use. This course will satisfy that legal requirement for training and will provide you with certification to confirm that you have completed this training. This training does not substitute a DSE Risk Assessment.

What's in it for me?

By completing this training will learn how to avoid the known ill health or injury associated working on display screen equipment, such as repetitive strain injuries, work-related upper limb disorders, musculoskeletal disorders and mental health issues. This course will help you both professionally and personally.
Remember: By law your employer must carry out a DSE Risk assessment if you are a DSE user.
