- Workstations and display screen equipment
There will also be presentations from schools who:

There will be an opportunity to raise health and safety questions and arrange a routine
visit if you haven't already had one.
There will be a display of ergonomic workstation solutions by PostureChairs / Vergo and a chance to ask questions of their experienced
ergonomically trained assessors.
Finally, in response to the number of schools raising queries and DfE guidance referring to defibrillators, there will be a short presentation from the Yorkshire Ambulance Service.
Refreshments will be provided.
