DSE Assessor Training

Our DSE Assessor Training courses focus on training key members of your team to carry out DSE Assessments on behalf of your business or organisation.

Having your own on-site DSE Assessor allows you to better safeguard your employees’ health, and provides you with a fast, flexible, cost-effective risk management solution.

DSE Assessor training takes as little as 1 day for a group of up to 10 delegates.

The OFI trainer did an excellent job of clarifying & simplifying the risk surrounding DSE and workstation related injuries – and how best they can be avoided. I felt the training was very valuable and now feel confident in carrying out my own assessments.
