ErgoWize DSE Online Training

ErgoWize DSE online training is vital if Display Screen equipment users are to understand best practice in workplace ergonomics. The ErgoWize Online DSE Assessment training has been developed to highlight the key issues associated with working with display screen equipment, such as muscular pain, fatigue, and eyestrain.

The DSE online training provides practical guidance on the safe set-up and use of workstations. Once trained, the employee undertakes a Risk Assessment to highlight any issues with their workstation and allow these to be addressed before damage is done.

This online training only provides awareness education. Face to face training would be needed in addition in order to complete the all round skills and knowledge to be able to carry this forward practically in your organisation.

The importance of DSE Training and Assessment

The use of display screen equipment – or DSE – has become almost ubiquitous across the UK workforce, with a broad range of jobs now involving the use of a computer. But, as the use of laptops, PCs, and tablets has increased, so too have the associated health risks, which can range from musculoskeletal injuries, aches, and pains, to fatigue, headaches and eye strain.

The legislation was introduced in 1992 – because of this prevalence – to protect people who work regularly with DSE. The regulations include the need for regular monitoring of workstation set-up and usage.

Effective ergonomics has been proven to reduce the potential for accidents, injury and ill health and to improve performance and productivity. Small changes and interventions can have important results.

The ErgoWize Online DSE Assessment training explains how small changes and interventions in the use of a workstation, such as altering a sitting position or using the mouse and keyboard in different ways, can have significant impacts. The DSE course highlights the preventative action that can help users to avoid health issues, such as regular movement and stretching, changing focal point and correct usage of mobile devices such as laptops.

After completing the ErgoWize DSE training course, participants undertake an online DSE Risk Assessment, which has been designed to enable your employees to manage their workstation in a way that avoids any potential accidents or ill health due to DSE and associated equipment. Once completed, the risk assessments can be prioritised so that appropriate action can be taken.

As with all our courses, this ErgoWize online DSE Assessment training can be customised to meet your needs, at no extra cost. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation.
