License is always required.

The latter checks their compliance with the provisions of the German Labour Leasing Code.
Safety is important to us.
Temporary workers have to fulfil changing requirements of different companies with different fields of activities. Therefore, before they start their new jobs, it is important to check their skills and vocational qualification, to prepare them for their new activities and to inform them on the occupational safety and health protection measures at the respective companies.
The occupational safety regulations at the workplace also applies to the temporary workers.
