INFECTION RISKS to new and expectant mothers in the workplace
Pregnancy is part of everyday life.
Being pregnant does not mean that you are
ill, but some infections, if they are
contracted in pregnancy, can affect the
health of the mother and baby. In very rare
cases, the baby may suffer serious harm and
this may result in permanent disability or
even death. This publication is a guide for employers on protecting the health and safety of employees who are new or expectant mothers. It deals with the risk of infections in the workplace.
