Health & Safety - DSE SEPT - MANDATORY TRAINING The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations lay down minimum health and safety requirements for working with Display Screen Equipment (DSE). Working with DSE is not an high risk activity but it can lead to muscular and other physical problems, eye fatigue, and mental stress. These problems can be overcome by good ergonomic design of equipment, furniture, the work environment, and the tasks performed. The regulations refer to the DSE, such as monitors and screens, and input devices, accessories to the DSE, peripheral desk items such as printer, keyboard, mouse, laptop, telephone, etc., the desk, chair, other furniture, and the immediate work environment. A 'user' is an "employee who normally uses DSE for continuous or near continuous spells of an hour or more at a time”. DSE also covers home, telephony, and agency workers.
SEPT - MANDATORY TRAINING If they fall into the definition of a DSE user, staff are required to undertake the self assessment module for DSE on electronic learning and then complete the DSE Self-Assessment. This self assessment will be reviewed and actioned by their Manager. Managers are responsible for ensuring that the correct equipment, facilities and assessments are provided/carried out for all employees who are classed as DSE equipment users. Staff should set up and use their workstation as advised in the DSE Self-Assessment. Your eye-sight is an important part of DSE work. Have your eye-sight checked regularly by a qualified practitioner, and follow the advice they give you. Re-imbursement is provided by the Trust for the cost of an eye test. The Trust may also contribute to the cost of middle-distance glasses, if these are prescribed for your DSE work. Please refer to the Trust DSE Policy for further information and speak to your Manager. Staff who do not meet the definition of DSE user should still follow the advice on the electronic learning system as best practice.
