The Importance of Display Screen Equipment Training

Display Screen Equipment (DSE) is part of our daily working lives but it’s important that it’s set up correctly and used well, with regular breaks. Prolonged improper use can result in musculoskeletal disorders and long-term pain. It can also cause neck, back, and shoulder pain, sore arms, fatigue and eye strain.

Making sure your organisation knows how to correctly set up workstations is integral to productivity and employee wellbeing.

FAQ's

If you have any questions that are not covered here, please get in touch.

Dual monitors make it easier to compare different data sets and images, rather than having to click between them as you might on a single screen. They allow users to run two programs or apps at the same time. Some people find dual screens make them more productive and better able to visualise information.

Dual monitors should be at the right level so as not to cause undue strain on the neck, back, or any other musculoskeletal problem associated with incorrect DSE use. Most machines are set up to handle dual screens so the process of connecting them should be straightforward; however, you may need to adjust them.

Dual monitors can cause neck, shoulder and back pain if they are not positioned correctly. This is because they are often used simultaneously, meaning the neck is constantly moving to allow you to see both. If they are properly set up and a risk assessment has taken place, they should not be bad for your neck.
