Many people use Display Screen Equipment (DSE) as a part of their daily work routine. The most common type of DSE is a desktop computer, but the term can refer to any device with a display including tablets, laptops and touch screens.
Unfortunately, the improper or intensive use of display screen equipment has been linked to a variety of health complaints. Those health complaints include repetitive strain injuries (RSI), back pain, visual fatigue and stress.
However, it isn’t all doom and gloom! With a correctly setup workstation, it is possible to use DSE safely and efficiently for long periods. Using workstations that are configured for the health and safety of staff members can also greatly increase productivity and help staff avoid illnesses.
