Surveys have found that a high proportion of DSE (Display Screen Equipment) workers report aches, pains or eye discomfort.
These aches and pains are sometimes called work related upper limb disorders (WRULD’s), which can include a range of medical conditions such as RSI. Most of these conditions do not indicate any serious ill health, but it makes sense to avoid them as far as possible.
WRULD’s can be avoided if users are given DSE Training and follow effective practice, set up their workstations properly and take breaks during prolonged use. By just taking a few simple precautions, work with DSE can be more comfortable and productive.
Our DSE training courses, approved by the IIRSM, and are aimed at users of display screen equipment (DSE) and those responsible for assessing display screen equipment.
A ‘user’, is anyone who regularly uses display screen equipment for a significant part of their normal work. In practice, if you use display screen equipment continuously for more than one hour a day, then you’re a ‘user’ and you would require DSE training by law. The HSE have produced some FAQ’s which can be found here.

So what do we mean by display screen equipment?
The first thing most people think of is a computer monitor. But that’s not the only thing it refers to. Display screen equipment could also mean laptops, tablet PCs, televisions, smartphones, CNC control pads, portable diagnostic screens or equipment containing cathode ray tubes, or CRTs.
The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations contain special directives covering DSE safety. Both employers and employee‐users have responsibilities under the legislation.
This DSE Training course fulfils your statutory training obligations and covers among other things, the correct way to set up and use your display screen equipment safely. Reducing the risk of work related conditions. The actual regulation is reproduced below and is Regulation 6.
Provision of training
6. (1) Where a person–
(a)is already a user on the date of coming into force of these Regulations; or
(b)is an employee who does not habitually use display screen equipment as a significant part of his normal work but is to become a user in the undertaking in which he is already employed,
his employer shall ensure that he is provided with adequate health and safety training in the use of any workstation upon which he may be required to work.
(2) Every employer shall ensure that each user at work in his undertaking is provided with adequate health and safety training whenever the organisation of any workstation in that undertaking upon which he may be required to work is substantially modified.
