What is display screen equipment?
Display screen equipment refers to any screen showing an alphanumeric or graphic display. The most popular example of DSE is a computer monitor, however the term can also refer to laptops, televisions, smartphones, CNC control pads etc. People who spend a significant part of their average work day (over an hour) using display screen equipment are referred to as ‘users’.
The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations contain special directives covering DSE safety. Both employers and employees/users have responsibilities under the legislation.
