  • Learn more about health and safety rights as an employee
  • Perform a self-assessment of any workstation to identify and rectify potential health risks

Course Introduction

The idea that working at desks, or using display screens, can be damaging to your health is now well established. But it’s not just desk-bound workers that are vulnerable. In today’s highly computerised age, employees in many fields now spend more time than ever before in front of screens.

The big problem is the gradual nature of the damage caused. Just like you don’t notice the daily aging of your body, poor working conditions take a slow but serious toll on your body. This course will help you set up your workstation to minimise any potential damage to your health.

This e-learning course has been designed to help ensure learners are aware of the dangers that poor ergonomics and display screen techniques can have to your health and that they know what to do to help improve things.
