What is an e-learning short course?
Short Courses are short e-learning courses designed to give your employees knowledge and understanding of key areas that are increasingly necessary in the workplace, such as cyber security, equality and diversity, data and privacy laws, and health and safety legislation. Each Short Course takes an average of 20 to 40 minutes to complete.
Every day hundreds of thousands of us spend multiple hours using display screen equipment (DSE), a computer at work, a laptop or tablet at home, with little regard for the health problems it may cause us. From postural issues to eye strain, repetitive strain injury to headaches - if you’re using display screen equipment regularly you may suffer from one or more of these conditions. The good news is that there are steps you can take to make working with DSE as comfortable as possible. This course outlines the steps you should take.

Finally, the course will outline the kind of support employers should provide for users of DSE at work.
