Does your organisation have employees that use display screen equipment in an office, while working at home or when going out to visit customers or clients? If so, then the Display Screen Equipment Regulations apply to your company. Does your organisation provide online DSE training and assessment to these employees? You should be aware that Regulation 6 of the Display Screen Equipment Regulations states that an employer must train every user in the hazards and safe use of workstations. If you are not training your employees, then you could be subject to an improvement notice, prosecution or an increased risk of a civil claim against the organisation. The provision of training is not a matter of choice or optional, it is an absolute requirement.
Aims of the Course
Display Screen Equipment online training from First Response aims to help your organisation be legally compliant with the Display Screen Equipment Regulations. It’s designed to promote a culture within your organisation that encourages everyone to consider the risks associated with using display screen equipment, apply good ergonomic principles and adopt the correct work practices and postures.
Who is it for?
The online DSE training is aimed at all levels of employees who may use display screen equipment such as office personal computers, laptops and handheld devices. The module has been developed by qualified and experienced health, safety and environment professionals who have many years experience in the delivery of training solutions. The result is a high quality online DSE training solution that gives the trainee the necessary tools to meet their health, safety and environment obligations and the organisation a level of compliance through an engaging and effective learning medium.
How is it Delivered?
The DSE training can be delivered online or through a computer network to each employee at their desktop or laptop or other device. We can also provide the course to be integrated into a SCORM compliant LMS. The training can be completed at the individual’s own pace by ‘book marking’ and recording progress and returning to the training at a later stage. In delivering the training in this way the normal costs of training are reduced whilst still achieving the desired awareness and compliance with the organisation’s legal responsibilities.
Compliance Record Keeping Easily Solved
An invaluable feature of First Response eLearning modules is our learning management system called the eSP, our eSolutions Platform. This solves the problem of compliance record keeping by recording all training and completion of courses and making these records available for you to view and manage electronically. No more struggling to find training records should you have a visit from the enforcing agency or an audit. Training certificates can be printed by the trainee once the course is completed and the end DSE assessment successfully passed.
The online DSE training course from First Response helps all levels of employees meet the requirements of the ‘Display Screen Equipment Regulations’ by following the Health and Safety Executive’s Guidance note on the Regulations L26 and ensure they are not exposing themselves to risk.
Content of the Module
The aim of the module is to provide trainees with the ability to understand the hazards associated with display screen use and the actions they can take to ensure an ergonomic workstation.
Please note: the module will also enable trainees to complete the First Response User Workstation Assessment (UWA) which in turn ensures compliance with Regulation 2 of the Display Screen Equipment Regulations relating to Workstation assessments.
