Display Screen Equipment (DSE) Awareness

What do we mean by display screen equipment? The first thing most people think of is a computer monitor. But that’s not the only thing it refers to. Display screen equipment 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 special directives covering DSE safety. Both employers and employee‐users have responsibilities under the legislation. This course fulfils your statutory training obligations and covers among other things, the correct way to set up and use your display screen equipment safely. Reducing the risk of work related conditions.

If DSE equipment is not set up correctly, users are at increased risk from certain disorders. As an employee, you therefore share the responsibility to keep yourself and other people safe at work. That means you should  undergo relevant training and ensure that rules are followed. Remember, this is for your benefit, as it’s your health which is at risk. You are also entitled to have eyesight tests on request and spectacles if needed, these should be paid for by your employer.

Who Is It For?

This course is aimed at users of display screen equipment (DSE) and those responsible for assessing display screen equipment. A ‘user’, is anyone who regularly uses display screen equipment for a significant part of their normal work. In practice, if you use display screen equipment continuously for more than one hour a day, then you’re a ‘user’.

The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations contain special directives covering DSE safety. Both employers and employee‐users have responsibilities under the legislation.
