This comprehensive online New and Expectant Mothers training programme provides both employers and employees with everything they need to know about returning to work post pregnancy and considerations for expectant mothers.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

  • Understand the need for risk assessments to be performed when you find out an employee is expecting
  • Learn what you must consider when carrying out a risk assessment
  • Understand the rights surrounding maternity/paternity leave, pay and maternity allowance

SECTION 1

In this section we look at the two stages of risk assessment which should be done. Firstly a generic risk assessment – which is done for all employees, but must cover new and expectant mothers, regardless of whether an organisation has any. And the second stage of risk assessment – assessment after notification, which is all about re-visiting the generic risk assessment after a woman has notified her manager that she’s pregnant.

SECTION 2

This section concentrates on the four main areas which must be considered in a risk assessment to take account of new and expectant mothers – physical factors – including manual handling and seating, biological hazards – for example illnesses and bacteria, chemical hazards, such as working with lead or mercury; and working conditions – which includes working hours, travelling and work environment.

SECTION 3

This section covers maternity rights, such as maternity leave, maternity pay and maternity allowance. It looks at redundancy, paternity leave, adoption, surrogacy arrangements and returning to work. It refers to the Equality Act in connection with discrimination.
