Prevent MSK injuries

Our ways of working over the last year have made many of us think more about the impact that our workstation can have on our health and wellbeing. We are looking at how we can provide the best support, and will soon be piloting a Display Screen Equipment (DSE) e-learning package from a company called Cardinus Risk Management. 

DSE training is crucial in preventing musculoskeletal injuries to those who regularly use display screen equipment. This short e-learning course provides you with personalised, interactive learning and tailors recommendations to how and where you are working.

To support staff both within the work place and at home we are looking for volunteers to complete this trial and provide feedback on the package and how it compares to the training and self-assessment that we currently have in place. The training is suitable for any computer user in the Trust. To volunteer please contact the health and safety team by emailing DCHST.staysafe@nhs.net.
