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.
