Display Screen Equipment/Computer Safety
Under Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations, employers are required to ensure that users of computers and other items of display screen equipment (DSE) are provided with adequate training on how to use these devices and their workstations safely. It is up to the employer how this training is provided.
Our computer safety e-learning course meets this legal requirement and it helps to reduce risks of ill-health caused by the use of DSE. The training is suitable for any employee who needs to use DSE in the workplace.
The course takes around 30 mins to complete.
Each of the following elements is covered in the training programme:
- Health effects from using computers
- The law on display screen equipment
- Employers’ duties
- Getting comfortable and making adjustments – seat height, your desk and avoiding glare
- Using a mouse
- Reading the screen
- Posture and breaks
- Using laptops safely
- End of course assessment
