The working environments have undergone profound changes over the years, introducing more and more the presence of women.
The Employer is required to carry out the assessment of the risks present in the company and to put in place protective measures towards workers.
As part of the assessment, he must identify and assess regularly all the risks and dangers deriving from the activities usually carried out by the pregnant or puerperium or breastfeeding workers up to seven months after delivery.
The risk assessment must first focus on the identification of all work prohibited during pregnancy and up to seven months after delivery and must not neglect any other residual risk factors for pregnancy such as time, type of shifts, posture...
For each of them optimal strategies must be developed, aimed to prevent and reduce any damage to the workers themselves.
There are also examples of risks present in some of the most common work activities carried out by female workers.
