Benefits to you

Managing DSE is important because it helps ensure that workstations are set up ergonomically, reducing the risk of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) such as back pain, neck strain, and repetitive strain injuries (RSIs).

Properly set up DSE can enhance productivity by reducing distractions, discomfort, and fatigue.

Proactive management of DSE properly can mitigate the risks of employee injury claims, reduced productivity, and damage to reputation.
