Everyone who regularly uses a computer needs IT Health and Safety Training - DSE - Display Screen Equipment Training. Taking just 30 minutes to complete, our DSE training programme will help you meet the requirements of The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992 which covers computer health and safety.
The IT Safety Training is excellent value and is available online or CD-ROM so, if you are looking for DSE Training or how to carry out a DSE assessment, then we are so confident that this is what you need, that we will provide you with a FREE TRIAL without the need for credit card details.
This DSE training programme is not encouraging you to spend lots of money on new furniture and computers; what it does, is help you use what you've got, but with better arrangement. A DSE assessment will show what is required for improved computer health and safety, but often all that's required is simple but effective training.
Our IT Health and Safety training for Display Screen Equipment has been approved by RoSPA.
1. At Your Desk
In this section of the DSE training programme we look at your chair and desk and how they should best be set up for your comfort. We explain why your posture is so important and show you why you should carry out a DSE assessment on your chair to set it up for best seating position to maintain good posture.
2. On Your Desk
The layout of everything on your desk is very important. In this section of the DSE training programme we look at YOU, how you work and what is on your desk to help you carry out a DSE assessment to arrange your workplace to be efficient, comfortable and to avoid stress. We look at your typing position and use video to show how your arms, wrists, hands and fingers should best be positioned for good computer health and safety.
Wherever your workstation is set up you should be able to concentrate. In this section of the DSE training programme we look at how you can ensure the lighting, temperature, glare, noise level and even the software you use are right for you.
4. Portable Devices
Your posture and positioning are as important when using portable devices as they are when using fixed-position workstations. In this section of the DSE training programme we look at extra considerations that should be made when carrying and using portables. You can then carry out a DSE assessment of your devices for a more comfortable and safe workplace.
This section of the DSE training and DSE assessment programme contains a set of gentle exercises which can be done while sitting at your desk. They don’t require any special equipment and take very little time but should help to reduce any stresses and strains which are put on your body while sitting at your desk. The computer health and safety exercises can also be seen on the iHasco YouTube channel.
6. DSE Assessment
DSE assessments are required to help compliance with the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations. Performing your own DSE assessment of your working area will enable you to highlight any concerns and potential risks.
7. Taking the Test
After completing every section of the DSE training programme and your own DSE assessment there is a 20 question multiple- choice test. A certificate can be printed out for each person who takes the test to show they have completed their display screen equipment training and DSE assessment in computer health and safety.
