British Safety Council Level 2 Award in DSE Risk Assessment

The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992 require employers to assess both the workstation and the working environment of employees who regularly use computer workstations.

The Level 2 Award in DSE Risk Assessment provides formal recognition of an individual's ability to undertake a DSE risk assessment in line with the Health and Safety Executive's guidance to the regulations.

Accredited by the Ofqual at Level 2 in the qualifications and credit framework (QCF).

Our training utilises the very latest learning methods, with special emphasis on participative and interactive techniques. Overall, the aim of our training is to share knowledge and practical experience and, through tutor-led sessions, build on that experience so that every participant is able to manage risk assessment effectively and realistically. The training sets out to develop sound and practical knowledge and understanding for day-to-day application in the workplace and prepares each participant for the Level 2 qualification assessment.
