DSE Training

Train your staff to carry out DSE assessments.

This one day DSE course incorporates the use of  tablets, notebooks, laptops and mobile phones.

  • The DSE assessor training course provides delegates with an understanding of the legal framework and underpinning of ergonomic principles of DSE including smart phones, laptops and tablets
  • DSE training is ideal for anyone with line management responsibilities, those who have been appointed as DSE assessors and those involved in delivering new staff inductions
  • The price includes all training materials, lunch and refreshments
  • DSE training takes place in Birmingham and Edinburgh – it is also available as an in-company option
  • Successful delegates receive a RoSPA certificate of training.
  • It is aimed at anyone with line management responsibilities, those who have been appointed as DSE Assessors and those involved in delivering new staff inductions.
