This DSE Training for Home Workers course will provide you with an understanding of the hazards associated with incorrect DSE use. You will learn how to set up your workstation correctly to help prevent ill health, such as musculoskeletal disorders. The course will also explain how to adopt good postures, exercises, and movements to reduce physical strain when using DSE, as well as other factors to consider, such as the environment you work in and how to minimise eye strain.
Working from home can provide employees with many benefits. With the number of people working from home continually increasing, it's essential that home workers understand how to carry out their duties safely.

Employers are required by law under the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations to ensure their employees can use their DSE safely, regardless of whether they are working in a workplace or from home.
