Our display screen equipment courses are aimed at users of display screen equipment (DSE) and
those responsible for assessing display screen equipment. A ‘user’, is anyone who regularly uses
display screen equipment for a significant part of their normal work. In practice, if you use display
screen equipment continuously for more than one hour a day, then you’re a ‘user’.
So what do we mean by display screen equipment?
The first thing most people think of is a computer monitor. But that’s not the only thing it refers to
Display screen equipment could also mean laptops, tablet PCs, televisions, smartphones, CNC
control pads, portable diagnostic screens or equipment containing cathode ray tubes, or CRTs.
The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations contain special directives covering
DSE safety. Both employers and employee‐users have responsibilities under the legislation.
