Course Content

DSE Explained 

An introductory module that establishes the foundations for the work you will carry out in the rest of the course. You will cover DSE terminology, the risks and impact of a poorly designed workstation. You will also gain a deeper understanding of employer and employee obligations as well as the legislation that relates to DSE.

DSE Assessments

Knowing what the risks are is one thing but being able to objectively evaluate your workstation to identify risks is another. This section will walk you through the DSE assessment process, so you know what to look for and how to record your findings.

Workstation Setup
