Course Aims

So what do we mean by display screen equipment?

The first thing most people think of is a computer monitor. But that’s not the only thing it refers to
Display screen equipment could also mean laptops, tablet PCs, televisions, smartphones, CNC
control pads, portable diagnostic screens or equipment containing cathode ray tubes, or CRTs.

The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations contain special directives covering
DSE safety. Both employers and employee‐users have responsibilities under the legislation.
