The Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) updated web pages explain how employers should manage the health and safety of new mothers and pregnant workers.
Employers are responsible for providing a safe working environment while effectively managing risks to the health and safety of all employees through risk assessments.
The guide provides a summary of your duties to protect new and expectant mothers, including:
- welfare and rights of new and expectant mothers
- risk assessment for new and expectant mothers
- rest and breastfeeding at work
