Risk assessment: the key step in the establishing of the workstation sheet

When to fill out a workstation sheet

Yes, a self-employed worker must draw up a workstation sheet for the temporary worker he wishes to occupy if there are health risks related to the workstation he will be appointed to.

As soon as a temporary worker is hired, the self-employed worker is considered - under the legislation on well-being at work - as the de facto employer of the temporary worker. Therefore, like all employers, he is required to comply with legislation on well-being at work. This implies, inter alia, the obligation to carry out a risk assessment of the workstation in question. The self-employed worker must also be affiliated with a PPW external service. Its external service will thus be able to help him in carrying out the risk assessment. If the risk assessment shows that there are health risks at the workstation concerned, a workstation sheet is mandatory.
