DSE Training (Display Screen Equipment) Course
This DSE Training course in awareness provides the essential knowledge needed for anybody who regularly uses display screen equipment as part of their regular job responsibilities. Poor posture, screen positioning and chairs are just a few aspects that could cause painful injuries and risk to health. Injuries such as eye strain, back and neck problems and headaches can be incredibly painful but easily avoided.
