DSeasy's online DSE Training Course gives clear, concise and easy to follow instructions on how to setup and use workstation equipment
Online DSE Training Interactivity
  • Learning how to improve your posture and reduce the risk of RSI, WRULDS or MSDs is not a game so we don’t use a game or virtual workstation.
  • Clear imagery gives you a realistic indication of the right approach to assessing your workstation.
  • This engages the user more with their own workstation rather than a virtual workstation in the software.
  • DSEasy interlaces the Knowledge Check questions and the self-assessment questions, within the training pages.
  • You can have DSEasy customised to insert your own workstation equipment, to make the programme relevant to your users.
  • Link pages to your Intranet
  • Link pages to a chair manufacturer’s instructions
Imaginative Imagery
Quality, relevant imagery instantly improves the user understanding.

Any images you don’t like can be changed to ones you do.
For example in DSEasy the default image regarding mental risks shows some angst.
