Display Screen Equipment Risk Assessment Training

Duration: 1 Day

Maximum number of delegates: 15

Aims and Objectives

The majority of employees now use personal computers and laptops in their work and this trend is set to increase particularly those who are not deemed as 'users' i.e. non-administration staff. Many employees regard the PC or laptop as an indispensable work tool.

Under the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992, every business has a duty to minimise the risks in visual display unit (VDU) work by ensuring that workplaces and jobs are well designed. The regulations apply to staff who habitually use VDUs as a significant part of their normal work. Staff who spend more than a few hours each day sitting at a desk with a DSE/VDU may experience headaches, neck and lower back pain, sore arms and shoulders or a combination of these problems. As an employer you are required to take all reasonable precautions to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone who uses your equipment.

This training will enable delegates to effectively carry out and report on workstation risk assessments in line with the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992
