The course also includes skippable information on different ways of working. Including working away from the office, use of mobile devices, standing for work and hotdesking.

This e-learning course only provides awareness education. Face to face training would be needed in addition in order to complete the all-round skills and knowledge to be able to carry this forward practically in your organisation


The ErgoWize DSE eLearning and Workstation Risk Assessment course aims to reduce the health risks associated with working with a computer workstation. It does this by introducing users to a comfortable sitting posture and correct keyboard and mouse techniques. In addition, the importance of a personally organised workstation is explained. Regular movement and stretching can be beneficial to alleviate postural strain.  The course also describes the importance of eyestrain prevention and a company eyesight policy. The correct use of laptops and mobile phones is essential to prevent personal injury.

Optional material covers carrying and using mobile devices, including laptops, tablets and mobile phones. Standing for work, working in vehicles, using multiple screens and touchscreens are also provided as optional sections. There is a skippable lesson suitable for expectant and new mothers, as well as those who manage women of child-bearing age.

The final lesson provides some simple stretching exercises to reduce tension and stress. These can be downloaded as a PDF for reference after the course is finished.

After completion of the DSE Training course, users undertake a risk assessment which aims to help the user resolve potential issues and ill health due to the use of DSE and associated equipment.  The risk assessment, once completed must be saved or printed off and handed to the relevant member of staff for appropriate action. If not saved, it will not be accessible later.
