New and expectant mothers policy

New and expectant mothers policy

Employees who are pregnant or have recently given birth need extra care and attention to protect them from workplace hazards. Use our policy to demonstrate that you have all the health and safety laws in this area covered.

What’s included?

The policy focuses on the risk assessment requirements affecting these more vulnerable employees. Firstly, it covers general risk assessment and explains how these assessments take into account the specific needs of employees who are women of childbearing age, new mothers and those who are pregnant or breastfeeding. The policy also covers specific risk assessments for new and expectant mothers and explains the programme for reviewing assessments and maintaining records. The other particular requirements of health and safety law include arrangements for night workers and for the provision of rest facilities.

Why you need a policy?

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 require all employers with five or more employees to write down their health and safety policy and their arrangements for implementing it. By producing a policy you’ll be making sure that you’ve covered this requirement in respect of new and expectant mothers at work
