DSE Training Course and Ergonomic Workstation Assessment
The Display Screen Equipment training course meets the requirements of Regulation 6 of the Display Screen Equipment Regulations and guidance concerning the employer’s duty to train users of equipment in the safe use of workstations.
The training has been developed to ensure that the important aspects of workstation ergonomics are understood by users, the main hazards associated with display screen use and how to adjust their workstation correctly whether in the office, at home, at a clients location or whilst mobile.
You can be confident that the course will ensure that your organisation meets the requirements and intent of the legislation and guidance, but more importantly that you are managing wellbeing and the risks associated with musculoskeletal disorders like back pain which result in absence from work.
Our online DSE training aims to change the way that your people think about how to set up their workstation and adjust their posture. It is designed to promote a culture that will encourage everyone to focus on the ergonomics of their workplace, recognise good postures and the correct action to take to establish safe working practices.
A separate assessment tool called workstation assessment+ (WA+) is also available which can help you meet your obligation to assess workstations and multiple workplaces such as the home, hot-desks and clients premises. Click here for further information.
The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations require that assessments are undertaken for all display screen equipment users and their workstations. This requirement extends to homeworkers, workers at hot desks or those working for extended periods at a client location.
Any assessment must include the views of DSE users and the Praxis42 Workstation Assessment+ has been specifically designed to meet this requirement and caters for multiple workplaces and locations. The online system overcomes paper based systems by providing:
- Secure retrievable risk management records with an audit trail at a click of your mouse
- A record of the views of dse users required under the regulations
- A more efficient use of resources to follow up findings and issues
Just imagine how this Training and DSE Workstation Assessment will help solve your paperwork nightmare, the cost savings it will bring to the organisation and how you will be able to manage issues with a powerful resolution and reporting function always at your fingertips.
