DSE Safety Training course – Antrim, Northern Ireland

DSE Assessor Training

Working with display screen equipment is not a high-risk occupation, however it does expose users to potential harm and as such there is a legal duty on employers put in place controls to reduce the risk so far as is reasonably practicable.  Display screen equipment (DSE) Assessments are a legal requirement and the good news is that if they are done correctly, they can help with combating musculoskeletal disorders and other ill-health effects that DSE users are at risk of developing through time spent at a poorly designed workstation.

Under the Health and Safety at Work (NI) Regulations 1978, employers have a duty to provide training for their workforce.  We provide an excellent course that will help you meet that legal duty and to keep your workforce safe whilst using Display Screen Equipment.
