New and Expectant Mothers Model Risk Assessment Form Mobile App
The New and Expectant Mothers Model Risk Assessment Form mobile obile app is meant as a guide only, to the issues to be aware of when undertaking a risk assessment for pregnant workers.
How does it work?
It is important that the pregnant worker is involved in the risk assessment process to ensure all the relevant facts and issues are covered. The risk assessment should then be reviewed on a regular basis, this may have to be increased as the pregnancy progresses. If the risk assessment identifies hazards that cannot be eliminated or adequately reduced then the pregnant worker’s duties (e.g. temporarily reducing hours, changing duties or place of work etc.) should be adjusted appropriately to ensure they are. If that cannot be achieved locally, the pregnant worker should be re-deployed for the duration of the pregnancy to a safer environment, if this cannot be achieved the legislation requires the pregnant worker to be suspended from work on maternity grounds.
