Accredited DSE Workstation Assessor Course

Benefit From Your Own In-house Health and Safety Expert

For many companies, it makes sense to have your own in-house DSE assessor. Having a competent, accredited assessor in your organisation will save you time and money, help you to comply with HSE regulations, and prevent ill health and absenteeism.

Most often, this will form part of your HR Manager or Facilities Manager’s role. But what about training and accreditation?

It goes without saying that our own Ergonix DSE workstation assessor course is fully accredited by the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (CIEHF), which means that the course content has been reviewed and approved by the chartered body responsible for ergonomics in the UK.

The aim of this practical, one-day course is to provide the skills and knowledge delegates need to become confident and competent DSE workstation assessors and gain a CIEHF certificate.

The trainer is a chartered physiotherapist with specialist ergonomic knowledge and extensive experience in all types of DSE workstation assessments.

Do your wrists hurt from typing? Ergonomics helps to create a safer, more comfortable working environment, leading to a better workplace experience and improved performance.

  • Reduced ill health
  • Less risk
  • Increased productivity
  • Better performance
  • Happier workforce
