Safe Use Of Computers
An essential guide to the correct use of computer workstations. Sections on physical and visual comfort teach staff to avoid common health issues associated with incorrect use of computers such as upper limb disorders (ULD) and repetitive strain injury (RSI).
Poor use of computer workstations is one of the most common causes of work related health issues. As well as causing problems for staff themselves, these issues can have a negative impact on organisations due to reduced productivity and time off work. We have designed this course to provide practical guidance for employees on how to use computer workstations in a way that minimises the risk of health issues and maximises physical comfort while working.
This course has been designed for anybody who works regularly with computers. It is ideal for organisations who need to train their employees to use computers in a way that minimises the risk of injury and health issues.
