      What are the employer's responsibilities for pregnant employees?

      Employers are required to ensure the safety, health, and welfare of all employees, including pregnant ones. This includes conducting risk assessments to identify potential risks to pregnant employees and making reasonable adjustments to their working conditions or hours.

      What adjustments should be made for pregnant employees at work?

      Adjustments can include providing more frequent rest breaks, modifying work duties to avoid heavy lifting or prolonged standing, offering flexible working hours, and ensuring that the work environment is safe and comfortable.

      What should be done if the work environment poses risks to a pregnant employee?

      If a risk assessment identifies any hazards that could endanger a pregnant employee, the employer must take action to remove or reduce these risks. This could mean altering the employee’s working conditions or, if that’s not possible, offering suitable alternative work at the same rate of pay.

      What happens if a pregnant employee’s job involves exposure to chemicals or hazardous substances?

      Employers must assess the risks associated with exposure to hazardous substances and take appropriate measures to eliminate or reduce exposure. This may involve modifying the employee's job duties, providing additional personal protective equipment, or temporarily reassigning the employee to a safer role.

      Are there specific guidelines for pregnant employees working with display screen equipment?

      While there are no specific regulations exclusively for pregnant employees, employers should ensure that all employees using display screen equipment do so comfortably and safely. For pregnant employees, this may mean more frequent breaks, ergonomic assessments of their workstation, or provision of suitable seating.

      How does workplace stress affect pregnant employees and what can be done about it?

      Stress can have significant health impacts on pregnant employees, potentially affecting their pregnancy and overall well-being. Employers should identify and mitigate sources of stress through risk assessments and by providing support such as flexible working arrangements, clear communication about job expectations, and access to occupational health services.
