What is DSE?

Many workers find themselves spending extended periods in front of a computer screen, whether it’s a desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. Without the proper training, day-to-day work can result in eye strain, repetitive strain injury, headaches, and back problems. The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992 requires employers to give suitable safety training to users of computers and other types of display screen equipment (DSE).
