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

The completion/establishing of the workstation sheet

The workstation sheet is a document containing specific information about the work that the temporary worker will perform. It is drawn up by the company where the temporary worker will carry out his mission (the user undertaking).

This document is a communication tool between the user undertaking, the temporary work agency, the occupational physician and the temporary worker.

The workstation sheet contains important information such as a description of the workstation, the necessary work clothes and/or personal protective equipment, health risks, required qualifications, etc.

A complete and sufficiently detailed workstation sheet is an indicator of the attention paid by the user undertaking to safety in the workplace.

If the work involves certain health risks:

  1.  a preliminary health assessment is required
  2. a workstation sheet is mandatory (by law).
