Display screen equipment (DSE) is common throughout the workplace. However, it can lead to spending long periods sitting looking at a screen and using a keyboard. If care isn’t taken, some people can experience problems such as headaches, eye strain and muscle pain, and as a result, there are Regulations about its use.
