Description

Employers have a legal responsibilities to ensure the health and safety of their workforce, and to be aware that demands may alter as individual circumstances of their employees change. One area that is protected under law is the health and safety of new and expectant mothers at work, and regulations require employers to re-assess risks in the workplace when they employ any women of childbearing age.

The EssentialSkillz New & Expectant Mothers Risk Assessment training explores the key workplace risks that new and expectant mothers might face – including prolonged periods of standing, excessive workloads, manual handling, noise, or exposure to biological or chemical agents – and examines different strategies to manage the risks and alleviate discomfort. It outlines the key legislation that protects new and expectant mothers at work, across the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 (MHSW), the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 (the Workplace Regulations), and the Equality Act 2010.

The online course explains the key responsibilities of both the employer and employee, considering topics including leave entitlement for antenatal appointments, maternity and paternity pay, and adoptive leave.

Like all the EssentialSkillz courses, the Risk Assessment for New and Expectant mothers can be customised to meet your needs, at no additional cost. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation.
