The use of Display Screen Equipment has rapidly become part of everyday life and
we are all exposed to their harmful effects. This course will provide information on
how to correctly set up your workstation to avoid injury as well as looking at the
hazards and risks you face while using the equipment. Using the comprehensive
Learning Management System (LMS) that sits behind the course, you can then
identify high risk users and put into place measures to help reduce the risks.
