Workplace Risk Assessment Form (worked example) – New or Expectant Mother
This is the worked example of the New or Expectant Mother Workplace Risk Assessment Form and the risk assessment form has been completed so that it can be used as an example of the type of issues that might need consideration when completing a risk assessment for a new or expectant mother.
This worked example of the New or Expectant Mother Workplace Risk Assessment Form draws on a variety of real life situations so some of the issues raised may be relevant for your business while others may not. As a result, some of the “existing controls” and the “further controls/actions” needed will apply and others will not. How the control measures differ will depend entirely on your company’s current health and safety procedures, but those shown provide an idea of how they could work.
It is important to remember that just carrying out a risk assessment will not make the workplace safer. It is only the first step in identifying the problems you have. For more general advice on completing risk assessments please look at our Guidance Notes - How to do a Risk Assessment.
