National Eye Health Week 2018 – 24th to 30th September
To keep eye health a priority it is an ideal time to ensure your training and eye health is up to date with our display screen equipment course.
This year’s National Eye Health Week (NEHW) is set to take place from the 24th to 30th September 2018.
This campaign aims to inspire and educate people on the importance of eye health and why they should go for regular sight tests, within this it is important if you work computers that you are aware of the relevant training required. We offer an online display screen equipment course which is only £17.50 + VAT and provides instant certification.
We offer an IIRSM (International Institute of Risk and Safety Management) approved online display screen equipment course. This course is aimed at users of display screen equipment, or DSE as it’s often called. DSE is a term that covers a wide range of equipment. If DSE equipment like this is not set up correctly, users are at increased risk from certain disorders. As an employee, you share the responsibility to keep people safe at work. That means undergoing relevant training and ensuring that rules are followed.
As part of National Eye Health Week, Training & Testing Services are recommending that you get your eyes tested if you have not done so in the last 2 years.
Vision really matters. Sight is the sense people fear losing the most, yet many of us don’t know how to look after our eyes – National Eye Health Week aims to change all that!
