New Mothers and Pregnant Workers:

Published by Safety Net Team

June 7, 2022

As an employer, you must manage the health and safety of new mothers and pregnant workers.

HSE advice has changed and you must carry out an individual risk assessment for them.

There will be little practical change as you must already consider risks to women of childbearing age in your general risk assessment. The difference is that you must also carry out an individual risk assessment that covers a worker’s specific needs when they inform you in writing that they:

  • are pregnant
  • have given birth in the last 6 months, or
  • are breastfeeding
