Do You Comply With Display Screen Equipment Regulations?
Regulation 6 of the Display Screen Equipment Regulations (1992) requires employers
to provide all users with adequate training on the use of workstations. This training
should include how to arrange the workstation suitably and safely and the actions
to take if the user develops any work-related health problems.
Whilst it is currently accepted that DSE itself is not harmful, the way in which
DSE is used can contribute to discomfort and ill health.
The DSE Regulations contain specific duties for employers, including:
- Performing “a suitable and sufficient analysis” of workstations to assess the health
and safety risks to which users are exposed.
- Providing users with adequate health and safety training in the use of the workstations
where they work
- Informing users about the health and safety aspects of their workstations.
On successful completion of the course a high quality, personalised
certificate will be posted to you the next working day. This can be used to provide
evidence for compliance and audit.
All of our courses are accredited by the CPD Certification Service as conforming
to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines.
This course is also accredited by RoSPA, the Royal Society for the Prevention of
Accidents, as providing quality and content-approved training.
The online assessment is taken on completion of the training material. You will
be asked 15 multiple choice questions with a pass mark of 75%. The answers are marked
automatically so that you’ll instantly know whether you passed. If you don't pass
don't worry! You can take the test as many times as you need with no extra charge.
Approximately 1 hour to complete the course in full. This can be spread out over
multiple sessions or completed in a single session. There is no time limit for completion.
