I work at a computer all day and my back and arms are aching, can I do anything?


All staff and research postgraduates who need to use computers for their work should complete a VDU Workstation Checklist to ensure they are working correctly at their computer. This can be found here. Actions regarding the result of a DSE assessment and any further investigation can be found in document AU Standard Practice Instruction – Display Screen Equipment.

It is also suggested that staff and postgraduate students undertake the Dispkay Screen Equipment (DSE) eLearning module on the Health and Safety Essentials Course (log-in required and use of Blackboard).
