This training will enable computer workstation users to correctly identify musculoskeletal risks associated with the use of DSE (Display Screen Equipment) or VDUs (Visual Display Unit) and to correctly set-up workstations to minimise potential problems.
Musculoskeletal injuries and additional health issues are a major cause of long-term injuries and sickness absence. Significant costs could potentially be incurred by the organisation in terms of compensation claims, including reductions in efficiency and potential enforcement action. Employers have a duty to ensure that such risks have been identified and evaluated and that suitable controls are in place to reduce the risks.
Training will include:
- Debate the impact of ergonomics on the workplace
- Discuss the implementation of the DSE regulations (1992)
- Evaluate hazards and risks related to workstation use
- Examine a process for performing DSE assessments
- Carry out a DSE assessment at a user’s workstation
- Create a personal action plan for carrying out DSE assessments
- Ill-health and injuries resulting from DSE use
- How these conditions can arise
- Identify risks resulting from task organisation
- Identify risks arising from DSE equipment
- Identify risks arising from the furniture
- Identify risks arising from the workplace environment
- Administrative and physical control measures
