Display Screen Equipment (DSE) Assessors


The display screen equipment (DSE) assessors training is a practical course that provides the skills to carry out risk assessments in compliance with The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations and seek to protect the health of workers by reducing risks from musculoskeletal disorders, mental stress and visual fatigue.

Due to 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. 

A key part of this course is the inclusion of current ways of working, with the increase in agile working and people working remotely we cover how to include modern ergonomic equipment including sit stand desk.

Our display screen equipment (DSE) assessors course is suitable for office managers, health and safety managers, supervisors and anyone working with visual display screen equipment.
