A DSE assessment is when checks are carried out to assess and improve your workstation to prevent any health problems, either short or long-term from using the equipment. Your posture, potential eye strain, comfort, and other areas that may be negatively impacted by incorrect workstation set up are assessed.
DSE can contribute to work-related ill-health if used incorrectly, as it can cause musculoskeletal disorders due to poor posture and repetitive strain injuries, which can occur from sustained incorrect working practices. It is important that individuals understand the risks associated with DSE use and how to reduce or prevent the likelihood of these occurring. This course will teach employees how to correctly set up their workstations and implement correct posture techniques and limit the risk of injury.
Compliance training is a legal requirement for employers, and this DSE training course can help fulfil this obligation. Having employees fully trained in safe working practices can reduce the likelihood of work-related injuries and accidents occurring in the workplace. By providing employees with suitable training, employers can show their commitment to health and safety while also reducing the costs associated with any ill health or claims due to incorrect working practices.
