DSE Assessor Training
1 day virtual & face-to-face courses
Our 1 day CIEHF-accredited DSE Assessor training course provides attendees with the skills and knowledge needed to carry out basic DSE risk assessments, as and when required. It is also suitable for anyone who has an interest in (or responsibility for) staff and their welfare, including line managers, safety, HR, facilities, and healthcare professionals.
This course has been independently assessed and accredited by the prestigious Chartered Institute of Ergonomics & Human Factors - our certification is available to view here. Acreditation amounts to an additional assurance that the course is of high quality, and delivered by teaching staff with suitable and sufficient qualifications and experience. Attendees who successfully complete the course will receive certificates which also carry the CIEHF logo.
Practical assessment techniques and the resolution of common issues are a key part of our interactive and hands-on training, building on theory elements including ergonomics, DSE related ill-health, the importance of movement and postural changes, the DSE Regulations and DSE policy. Full details on course content can be found here, with feedback on the training available on our Testimonials page.
Public course fees are £259 per person, which includes all materials, refreshments and lunch (face-to-face courses only), and unlimited future use of our DSE risk assessment documentation, if required.

As you might expect, the safety of our clients is our most important priority. During the COVID-19 pandemic, all our training and assessment services have therefore moved to virtual delivery to eliminate any risk of transmission of the virus. We will recommence face-to-face training as soon as we can do so safely.
We have received express permission from our accrediting body - the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics & Human Factors - to provide DSE Assessor Training in this way. The course itself has been carefully tweaked to allow for effective delivery and learning, with new additional resources and content also available offline for attendees to access. With a relaxed atmosphere and multiple breaks through the day, virtual DSE Assessor Training works really well as a necessary alternative to classroom courses.
We do always try to arrange public courses around the needs of customers. If you are interested in DSE Assessor Training but none of the dates or locations listed suit, please get in touch and let us know - we’ll do our best to arrange a new course around your requirements.
face-to-face public courses
To help keep everyone safe, face-to-face training has been temporarily suspended because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Until we're able to safely deliver training in person again, please see our virtual training course dates.
1 day CIEHF-accredited DSE Assessor Training is also available as an in-house course delivered virtually or at your premises. This can work out significantly cheaper depending on the number of people you require trained.
To keep their skills and knowledge up-to-date, we recommend that DSE assessors carry out refresher training every three years. We offer a choice of refresher training options:
1/2 day in-house Refresher Training for DSE Assessors course, either face-to-face or delivered virtually
