Educating staff in the correct set-up of their DSE equipment is the only way to ensure a long term positive behaviour change towards workstation safety. Staff who know how to identify DSE issues and adjust their workstation correctly are less likely to develop work related upper limb disorders, which means less absenteeism and a reduction in the risk of litigation for the organisation.

Being online, ErgoWize is the perfect way to deliver DSE Training as users are in the right place to make any small adjustments required to their workstation as they learn. ErgoWize also allows you to rapidly deploy straight forward and standardised training to large audiences with little disruption or downtime.

The ErgoWize DSE Training is fully customisable enabling each customer to tailor content or images to their exact requirements. Customisation is managed from within
O-LAS (the ErgoWize reporting system) meaning that ErgoWize customers can carry out the work themselves reducing future support costs.

Course content
  • How to sit correctly 
  • Correct keyboard and mouse set-up and use

ErgoWize Ultra Overview

On average customers using ErgoWize reduce the amount of time spent following up on DSE risk assessment issues by between 60% and 90% compared with their previous manual process or even other DSE software solutions. This massive time saving means that staff who were responsible for following up on DSE related issues, can dedicate more time to their other work related responsibilities.


ErgoWize Remote Managed Services

Whilst ErgoWize has been designed to make the system administration as easy as possible, some organisations prefer us to manage some or all of these tasks for them, either initially or on an ongoing basis.This does free up Health & Safety staff to concentrate fully on resolving the DSE related risks.

Introduction to DSE, the DSE Regulations & Compliance

The regulations also state that staff should be re-assessed if there is reason to suspect that the previous assessment is no longer valid or if there has been a significant change to the workstation since the last assessment took place. The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations ensure that all display screen equipment users are risk assessed.


DSE Risk Assessment

Customisable assessments We have designed the ErgoWize Risk Assessment so that customers can adapt and amend the questionnaire at any time, even post roll-out, to reflect changing environments, technologies and the unique nature of their own operation.


Tracking and Reporting

The traditional paper trail is elimiated as individual employee training and risk assessment records, along with follow-up action taken to resolve any concerns raised are saved centrally for easy compliance management. ErgoWize offers the lowest cost of ownership in the market place as any ongoing customisation of the training and risk assessment can be carried out by a customer's own Health & Safety staff.
