A member of your team is pregnant
Certain chemical, physical or biological agents may be dangerous during pregnancy. An excessive work charge can also enhance the risk of premature childbirth.
The employer has the obligation to analyze the risks and take appropriate protective measures, notably in terms of work settings and duration (standing position, number of hours per day), as well as difficulty and dangerousness of the activities. The superior is expected to inform the pregnant employee of the risks and prescribed measures and, if the danger posed by the activity to the mother or the child cannot be reduced within acceptable limits, to propose similar activities that present no risks.
STEPS engineers are available to carry out risk analyses and devise relevant protective measures.
In all cases, it is advisable to forward all information and relevant documents to the DIRH.
