Make sure you are working safely with DSE

All employers must protect workers from the health risks of working with Display Screen Equipment (DSE).

Incorrect use of DSE, or poorly designed workstations or work environments, can lead to pain in necks, shoulders, backs, arms, wrists and hands, as well as fatigue and eye strain.

HSE guidance, available here, covers a range of topics including:

•             Workstations and assessments.

•             Work routine and breaks.

•             Eyesight testing.

You can access resources including a DSE workstation checklist and practical tips on maintaining a good posture.  In addition, find guidance on what employers and workers need to know about working with DSE from home, here.
