Display Screen Equipment Awareness – So 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 anything containing cathode ray tubes, or CRTs.

The Health and Safety Regulations contain special directives covering DSE safety.

Both employers and employee‐users have responsibilities under the legislation.

Is this the right course for me?

Our online course is aimed at users of display screen equipment (DSE) and those responsible for assessing it.

A ‘user’, is anyone who regularly uses display screens for a significant part of their normal work.

In practice, if you use display screens continuously for more than one hour a day, then you’re a ‘user’.

This course fulfils your statutory training obligations and covers, amongst other things, the correct way to set up and use your display screen equipment safely and reducing the risk of work related conditions.

What our students say

Wonderful course, very easy to follow. Got me up to speed in no time at all on the basics of fire safety. Would recommend to others wishing to learn more about the basic principles of fire safety in the workplace.

I enjoyed this course and found the interactive videos easy to follow.  The course content is well thought out and provided lots of useful information.  I passed each module with flying colours and feel I now understand the basics when it comes to asbestos awareness.  Would highly recommend this online course.

The level 1 food safety for catering course was easy to follow and I learned a lot.  I enjoyed the way the course was delivered and how it was broken down into small modules, which made it easier to learn.  I have since completed level 2 food safety too.
