Reproductive Hazard Evaluation
The purpose of Reproductive Hazard Evaluation is to ensure that there are no exposure factors in the work environment that may harm the pregnant employee/student or her unborn child. Pregnant employees are encouraged to report to Occupational Medicine as soon as the pregnancy is known. Following a thorough work-site evaluation and potential exposure determination, the University Occupational Health Service Physician will discuss the results with the employee/student and recommend job restrictions or proper PPE if needed.
