A Pregnant Employee Risk Assessment is a risk assessment that particularly looks at the employee and their unborn child and measures to protect both whilst at work. It is an individual assessment as every person is different and may have different tasks and variety thereby creating different risk factors.
Pregnant Employee Risk Assessments are a legal requirement and should be undertaken as soon as the employer is told by the employee that they are pregnant.
