More about this course

DSE or Display Screen Equipment safety training highlights the correct posture and working position for people working at desks and with any type of display. Many medical conditions arise from incorrect posture and equipment positioning like neck/back problems, headaches, stiffness, sight problems as well as arm wrist and hand conditions.
