Bespoke DSE Training Videos

At ELO Media we specialise in making health and safety videos and bespoke DSE training videos (which stands for Display Screen Equipment) for companies and organisations  looking to provide vital health and safety training and guidance for employees on the correct use of DSE in their work and home environment.

The correct set up of an employees desk along with their DSE equipment (such as a PC keyboard, mouse and monitors) along with other factors such as their chair, seating position and environmental factors such as working temperature and ambient light all contribute to a comfortable and safe working condition. It’s important therefore that all staff understand the implications of each of these factors and can make adjustments that will ensure their health, safety and well being.

Why is DSE Training Important?

Display screen equipment (DSE) training is important for all employees who use computers, laptops, tablets or mobile phones for work. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recommends that DSE users have an assessment of their workstation and receive regular training on how to use DSE safely.

DSE training covers a range of topics including how to set up your workstation, how to take regular breaks and how to reduce the risk of developing musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) such as neck pain, back pain and eye strain.

DSE training is typically delivered as a group training session but can also be delivered on a one-to-one basis on video. Group training sessions are a great way to build team morale and get everyone on the same page when it comes to health and safety. One-to-one training sessions are ideal for employees who have specific needs or who require more support.

How Often Should DSE Training Be Delivered?

The HSE recommends that DSE training is delivered at least once every three years. However, this doesn’t mean that you can only deliver DSE training once every three years! Delivering DSE training more often than this is a good way to ensure that employees are up-to-date with the latest information and that they understand how to keep themselves safe while using DSEs.

Some companies choose to deliver DSE training on an annual basis, while others choose to deliver it more frequently, such as once every six months. It’s really up to you how often you want to deliver DSE training but we recommend doing it more rather than less!

What Are the Benefits of Delivering DSE Training?
There are many benefits associated with delivering regular DSE training, including:

Reducing the risk of MSDs – by delivering DSE training on a regular basis, you can help employees to understand how to reduce the risk of developing MSDs. This knowledge will empower them to make changes to their workstation set-up and their working practices so that they can stay healthy and comfortable while using DSEs.

Improving productivity – when employees feel comfortable and supported in their roles, they’re more likely to be productive. By delivering DSE training, you can help employees to understand how ergonomics play a role in their comfort levels and show them how they can make simple changes to improve their comfort levels while working.

Showing your commitment to employee wellbeing – by investing in employee wellbeing through initiatives such as DSE training, you can show your employees that you care about their health and safety. This investment will pay off in the form of improved morale, reduced absenteeism and increased productivity.

Complying with health and safety legislation – delivering regular DSE trainings helps you to comply with relevant health and safety legislation, such as the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999. These regulations state that employers have a duty of care towards their employees and must take steps to ensure their health, safety and welfare while at work. Providing regular DSE training is one way of complying with this legislation.

In conclusion, delivering regular display screen equipment (DSE) trainings is essential for all businesses whose employees use computers, laptops or other digital devices for work purposes. Not only does it help you comply with relevant health and safety legislation but it also has numerous other benefits for your business, such as reducing the risk of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), improving productivity levels and showing your commitment to employee wellbeing .
