Do you ever find yourself rubbing your eyes, straining your neck, stretching your wrists or massaging your own back? Excessive use of monitors without sufficient training could be causing long-term damage without you even knowing it. Commonly called RSI, repetitive strain injuries can happen without you even being aware of the danger.

This programme has been designed around the Display Screen Equipment Regulations 1992 to ensure you receive the basic knowledge for keeping you – and your fellow employees – safe from injury.
