Display Screen Equipment

DSE Assessment tools, consultancy, and DSE assessor training

Injuries caused through the incorrect use of Display Screen Equipment (DSE) are common, but avoidable.

To effectively assess DSE, and put solutions in place to reduce injury, expertise is required in both human anatomy and ergonomics.

At Osteopaths for Industry, we combine our vast knowledge and experience in these sciences to offer DSE Assessment and Training services that are revolutionising the way that organisations protect the health of their employees.

Osteopaths For Industry are trusted to train and assess all employees in our London offices. We are very happy with the service that they continue to provide.

Who is Display Screen Assessment training for?

Employers have a legal obligation to protect the health and safety of their workforce.

As an employer, you must protect your workers from the health risks of working with display screen equipment (DSE), such as computers, laptops, tablets, and smartphones.

The UK Health and Safety regulations apply to workers who use DSE daily, for continuous periods of an hour or more.

How can employers protect workers' health?

Employers must:

  • do a DSE workstation assessment
  • reduce risks, including making sure workers take breaks from DSE work or do something different
  • provide an eye test if a worker asks for one
  • provide training and information for workers.

Incorrect use of DSE and/or poorly designed workstations or work environments can lead to neck, shoulder, back, arm, wrist or hand pain, as eye strain and fatigue. The causes may not always be obvious.

The DSE Regulation law applies if users are:

  • at a fixed workstation
  • mobile workers
  • home workers
  • hot-desking workers.
