Pregnant worker assessment

Our pregnant worker assessments educate the pregnant employee about problems that may occur in the workplace and advise on how to reduce them to ensure an ergonomically safe environment to work in until maternity leave.

When pregnant the body shape changes as time progresses placing strain on the body. Backache is common as the tummy enlarges forcing the mother-to-be to sit further back from the desk causing problems with reaching and stretching. Swollen hands and legs may cause discomfort and due to the increase of blood flowing around the body, pregnant workers may feel more hot and faint. Fatigue and nausea can also be a problem.

The pregnant worker assessment will take approximately 1 hour. Following the assessment a report will be produced discussing observations and actions taken by the ergonomic specialist as well as advice on any future actions that both employer and the employee need to consider throughout the pregnancy.
