Have your Display Screen Equipment (DSE) Checked
DSE stands for Display Screen Equipment, if you are a user of this equipment it is now a law under the health and safety regulations 1992 in the work place, that an assessment on your workstation is carried out. Computer workstations or equipment can be associated with neck, shoulder, back or arm pain, as well as with fatigue and eyestrain. Surveys have found that a high proportion of DSE workers report aches, pains or eye discomfort. That doesn’t mean that DSE work is risky – it isn’t. These problems can be avoided if users follow effective practice, set up their workstations properly and take breaks during prolonged use. By just taking a few simple precautions and carrying out an assessment, work with DSE can be more comfortable and productive.
