The majority of employees now use personal computers in their work and the trend to increased use is unlikely to be reversed. In particular, the use by non administration staff has grown and many regard their display screen equipment as an indispensable work tool. Although the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992 apply only to those staff formally designated as "Users" under the Regulations, the general legal duty of care and the requirement under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1992 for the assessment of risks involved with work means that ALL display screen equipment (DSE) work and workstations must be assessed and any risks involved adequately controlled.Course Content
