Safe use of display screen equipment

Each school will have identified at least one member of staff to undertake the role of ‘Display Screen Equipment Assessment Co-ordinator’.

The ‘DSE Assessment Co-ordinator’ will have a separate log-in for accessing the DSE module located on the OSHENS on-line health and safety system.

In order to meet both regulatory and DCC requirements for the safe use of DSE within schools, the ‘DSE Assessment Co-ordinator’ will:-

  • Identify staff who fulfil the criteria ‘Display Screen Equipment User’
  • Set-up group and individual assessment requests
  • Monitor to ensure all users complete the on-line training, questionnaire and solutions checklist
  • Assign actions to any outstanding issues raised
  • Ensure all actions are fully completed and on-line records are maintained.

The ‘DSE User’ will receive an invitation to complete the on-line training and assessment package, which will encourage them to set-up their workstation correctly and self-action identified issues where possible.
The DSE Module can be accessed through the OSHENS Health, Safety & Wellbeing system using the assigned log-in details. User information is contained within the OSHENS Document Library.
