Display Screen Equipment (DSE) | Employee Factsheet

The term DSE covers not just PCs, but also laptops, tablets and smartphones. Some users of DSE experience aches and pains in their hands, wrists, arms, neck and shoulders following long periods of DSE work, and are often referred to as repetitive strain injury (RSI) or work-related upper limb disorders (WRULDs).

You can usually avoid these problems by ensuring you have a good workplace design and ensuring good working practices.

This Employee Factsheet takes you through:

•  What you can do to help yourself
•  Controlling the risks
•  Working from home
•  Chronic health conditions
