Display Screen Equipment (DSE) Assessors


This course provides learners with the necessary information to undertake and document DSE risk assessment. It gives an insight into the legislation and background behind DSE assessment and examines the implication of incorrect DSE usage. The course incorporates a practical session covering how to set up and use a workstation correctly.

Who needs this qualification?

This course is suitable for those in a supervisory or managerial role responsible for carrying out, or reviewing, current DSE risk assessments.

Why is this training important?

DSE training is a legal requirement under the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992 (as amended in 2002).
