What is Staying Safe with DSE – An Overview?

Millions of people in the UK now use display screen equipment for a significant part of their work, and this rapid growth in the use of both fixed and mobile forms of DSE has been accompanied by increasing concerns about an associated range of health and safety problems. The good news, however, is that most conditions can be prevented by careful consideration of the way in which jobs are organised, and by the provision of appropriate equipment and workplaces.
