DISPLAY SCREEN EQUIPMENT (DSE)

UCL requires that Managers assess and control the risks associated with display screen equipment (DSE) work.

Risks: Aches, pains, fatigue and eye discomfort caused by working at poorly laid out workstations and static postures.

Definitions:

Display Screen Equipment: A display screen usually forms part of a computer showing text, numbers or graphics.  The definition is not limited to office situations but also applies to non-electronic display screens e.g. microfiche.

DSE User: Individuals who use DSE continuously or near continuously for an hour or more at a time and do this on a more or less daily basis.  In most areas within UCL, it is recommended that all staff who have access to DSE be classed as users rather than trying to analyse the detail of each job or work activity.
