Why train DSE workstation assessors?

Why train DSE workstation assessors?

As well as being a legal requirement, if done correctly DSE workstation assessments can help reduce any injuries, distractions and any other issues that could occur in the workplace due to a poorly designed workstation.

Long hours using display screen equipment (DSE) has many risks. These can include back and neck pain as well as increased stress and low levels of productivity. DSE assessors have the ability to determine any possible risks and are able to look for solutions in order to decrease the chances of any health issues occurring.

DSE workstation assessors are able to undertake DSE assessments in accordance with current health and safety legislation and guidance. Also they will have a full understanding of the requirements of the regulations and legislation. They will be able to provide detailed advice to users of DSE, which will assist them in avoiding any health risks. As well as this they will be able to understand how common accidents occur in the workplace and how they can be remedied.

DSE workstation assessors have an imperative role to play within any business. As well as ensuring that the business complies with any legal obligations with regards to DSE, DSE assessors also aid businesses in reducing costs in the form of sick pay. Every year millions of work hours are lost due to neck and back pain caused by issues with DSE. DSE workstation assessors are able to reduce this number by ensuring the compliance with health & safety regulations, therefore reducing injuries in the workplace.

Every year millions of people injure themselves as a result of poorly designed workstations. As a result of this costs are massive for both the individual and the business. In 2013 back and neck pain resulted in 15 million lost work days.

Therefore, working out any health risks to employees who spend long hours using display screen equipment is a financial incentive for employers as well as a legal requirement.

DSE assessor training courses allow prospective assessors to understand any legislation with regards to DSE and fundamentals of DSE workstation assessing. DSE assessor training is perfect for anyone with managerial experience, being a qualified DSE assessor enables you to train new staff and give inductions regarding the use of DSE.

There is a wide range of DSE workstation assessor training courses on offer which enable companies to conduct their own employee assessments in accordance with legislation and guidance. Prospective assessors will be shown how to identify and assess various hazards and also how to reduce the risks to employees. On completion of the course all trainees will receive a handbook, course notes and full certification as a qualified assessor.
