VDU (Visual Display Unit) and DSE (Display Screen Equipment) Awareness
This online awareness course is for staff who are regularly working with VDUs (Visual Display Units) / Display Screen Equipment (DSE).
Self-Assessment - This awareness course requires trainees to complete a self-assessment regarding their workstation and habits. This can be invaluable in reducing risk and proving due diligence.
The law for working with VDUs is covered by The Health and Safety Display Screen Equipment Regulations.
These DSE regulations apply to all staff members who habitually work with VDUs.
What this training covers:
- Who do the regulations apply to?
- What makes a good workstation?
- Risks to health, and common questions
- Adjusting your workstation
It's the Law
The Health and Safety Display Screen Equipment Regulations state that employers must minimise risks from working with VDUs and that means ensuring employees have good DSE training, work in a well designed workplace and have well planned job tasks.
It's Good Business
Apart from legal responsibilities the time and effort spent on training has benefits such as saving your business time, money and improving staff morale.
