Display Screen Equipment

Display screen equipment is a term generally associated with desk top or laptop computers which are used for or in connection with work, but the term is also associated with other display equipment such as wall or machinery mounted monitors which are integral to the job. Display screen equipment does not include display equipment mainly intended for public use or calculators, cash registers or similar, but does include computer equipment provided for use by students in classrooms or PC cluster rooms.
