The Workstation Sheet: mandatory (by law)

Signature on the workstation sheet

Legislation on well-being at work does not require the temporary worker's signature.

The temporary work agency must provide the temporary worker with a copy of the completed workstation sheet and ensure that the temporary worker is well informed of the contents of this sheet.

In order to be able to prove that the transmission of information has taken place, many temporary work agencies ask the temporary worker to sign the workstation sheet. But other methods can equally be used.

However, the temporary worker's signature may have a psychological advantage. A person invited to sign a document is likely to be more attentive to its content and oral instructions.

When the user undertaking uses the workstation sheet as a registration document for induction, it is frequent that the temporary worker is also invited by the user undertaking to sign the workstation sheet (section C).
