Security and Business Continuity

Our technology infrastructure is designed to be fault-tolerant, with multiple/redundant processors, storage, connectivity and even power supplies. For instance, if there were a power outage or internet failure on one line, our systems would instantaneously switch over to a redundant line to provide you with an uninterrupted service.

The Skillcast servers are located at highly secure facilities in London and Newbury, which feature multiple layers of security and protection from fire, earthquakes etc. Online access security is provided by Cisco firewalls. We maintain a remote Disaster Recovery Site (DRS), where all the data from our primary datacenter is being mirrored in real time. The DRS effectively has the same infrastructure as the primary datacenter, so, in the case of a calamity at the primary datacenter, the DRS can ensure the continuity of our services.

Display Screen Equipment (DSE) Assessment

Cut down on the costs and logistics of DSE appraisals with the DSE Assessment add-on to your Skillcast LMS.

Conduct DSE Assessments Online

All employers in the UK have a legal obligation to provide DSE training and assessment for all employees who use computers regularly at work. This training and assessment is also important for the wellbeing of your employees, as the incorrect use of DSE can result in musculoskeletal disorders and repetitive strain injuries. Skillcast offers an effective online solution for your staff to conduct these assessments themselves.

Display Screen Equipment Assessment
Display Screen Equipment Assessment

The Skillcast DSE Assessment Tool enables you to:

  • Comply with the DSE Regulations
  • Help your staff identify issues and deal with them
  • Spot any trends and areas of concern for your organisation

As the DSE Assessment Tool is an add-on to our LMS, you can combine it with digital training on DSE and ask your employees to attest that they understand the correct use of their DSE workstation before they use the DSE Assessment Tool. The tool then alerts the relevant manager to any issues that your employees have reported, and enables them to review, comment and close the issues after resolving them.

Thus, you can provide DSE training and assessment to your employees on a more timely basis and avoid the logistics of scheduling DSE assessments. You can also identify issues that are being flagged up by multiple employees and take proactive action to prevent them from becoming more widespread.
