Sample letter about Health and Safety for a pregnant woman
Dear Ms Powell,
I am writing to confirm that I am pregnant. As you may know, employers have a duty to do a risk assessment for a pregnant woman if there is evidence of any risk to the woman or her unborn child.
I think that particular risks to me in my job are lifting heavy boxes and spending long periods standing up without a break.
Please let me know when you will be able to do the risk assessment. You can get lots of information about how to do a risk assessment and what to do if there are risks at www.hse.gov.uk.
This advice applies in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. If you live in another part of the UK, the law may differ. Please call our helpline for more details
