Maternity Risk Assessment tool
Employers have a legal responsibility to carry out an assessment of the risks to the health and safety of their employees whilst they are at work. This must include an assessment of risks to female employees of childbearing age and new and expectant mothers.
Although completing a Maternity Risk Assessment for each individual employee is not a legal requirement, it is recommended as best practice. The purpose of completing a separate specific Maternity Risk Assessment is to help you decide if any additional action needs to be taken for an individual employee.
Our maternity risk assessment tool allows you to tailor your assessment to include the relevant hazards in your workplace. We have created a self-assessment template which covers the following hazards that employees, who are new and expectant mothers, may be exposed to:
- Manual handling
- Thermal environment
- Excessive working hours and shift working
- Standing or sitting still for long periods of time
- Display screen equipment and ergonomics
- Work-related stress
- Threats of violence
- Lone working
- Hazardous substances
- Infectious diseases
This self-assessment template can be tailored to your organisation’s specific needs by removing inapplicable hazards, or adding industry-specific hazards. You can also adapt questions or pre-set recommendations in line with your organisation’s policies and procedures.
The information recorded upon completion of the assessment will document where employees are not exposed to particular hazards, and provide risk-based recommendations to complete or detail where further investigation may be required.
