The Workstation Sheet: an important communication tool

When to fill out a workstation sheet

It is legally mandatory to complete a workstation sheet when one wishes to occupy a temporary worker at a workstation (or function) for which a prior health assessment is required.

However, PI advises user undertakings to draw up and forward to the temporary work agency a workstation sheet for all workstations at which they wish to occupy temporary workers, including those for which prior health assessment is not, a priori, legally required. In this way, all positions/functions are managed in a uniform way and it will enable the temporary work agency to check easily whether the information about the position is complete. The temporary work agency will also be able to identify whether, ultimately, health surveillance is necessary.

It is, in fact, the temporary work agency's responsibility to organize the prior health assessment of temporary agency workers.
