Display Screen Equipment
eLearning Module

The main risks of working with Display Screen Equipment (DSE) are musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), visual fatigue and mental stress, all of which are caused by sitting in front of a computer for a long time and a poorly designed workstation.

module content

Under UK health and safety regulation, an employer has a responsibility to provide the right equipment and training for employees. Employers are responsible for creating a safe working environment and providing information and instructions relating to Display Screen Equipment to their employees.

At Bolt, we have created a Display Screen Equipment eLearning Module to help users understand the safe use of DSE equipment. Although the course is designed primarily for a desktop user, any user can complete this online training course, as advice on e.g. good posture is applicable for any DSE user. This eLearning course only provides awareness education and face-to-face training would be needed to carry this forward practically in your organisation.

Fully online and interactive, available 24/7 on any device and with no time limits, thanks to our state-of-the-art LMS, with an assessment at the end. A certificate can be downloaded upon successful completion of the eLearning Module. This course is RoSPA approved.
