A practical course providing the skills to carry out risk assessments in compliance with the Display Screen Equipment Regulations.
Enquire now for pricing information.
The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations came into force on 1 January 1993 (some minor changes were made in 2002) and seek to protect the health of workers by reducing risks from VDU work. Because of the nature of the risks, an individual assessment is required for each DSE training user; therefore many organisations choose to train people as DSE assessors in order to fulfil this function. We also run a DSE awareness course for every employee.
Learn how to:
- Assess workstations
- Ensure that the working environment is satisfactory for all employees
- Meet your responsibilities under health and safety legislation
- Minimise exposure to risk
