About DSE Assessor Training

This process is fundamental to preventing workplace hazards and DSE equipment is no exception. When DSE equipment is improperly set up, poorly designed or used incorrectly it can result in significant pain and suffering for the users.

Trained and competent DSE assessors are essential for conducting assessments that are compliant with DSE legislation.  At a basic level, they determine if equipment is suitable and working. But, they also work together with users to identify problems and simple, practical solutions where possible.

Why Is DSE Assessor Training Important?

There were nearly 500,000 workers affected by work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) in the latest year that data is available. This resulted in nearly 9 million working days lost. Along with MSDs, working with display screen equipment can be a significant contributor to eye fatigue, headache and mental stress. These health hazards have the potential to cause short-term or long-term chronic conditions, if not taken care of properly.

Due to the risk involved, the government has put forth DSE reguations – the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992 – which place a legal duty on employers to protect their staff from this hazard. A failure to do so can result in significant fines.
