The Workstation Sheet: an important communication tool

The completion/establishing of the workstation sheet

The temporary work agency can never replace the user undertaking and carry out the risk assessment of the workstation in its place. However, she must take a critical look at the workstation sheet.

How? For example, by way of ensuring that all fields have been filled out, that there are no obvious inconsistencies such as the absence of a “safety position” indication for a forklift operator, etc.

The mention of the dates of the advice of the prevention advisor, the occupational physician and the PPW committee is a good indicator of the quality of the workstation sheet. It shows that the user undertaking has discussed the results of the workstation risk assessment and has drawn up the workstation sheet in accordance with the existing legislation.
