If, following your specific assessment risks are identified, your employer will need to let you know what has been identified and the steps they will be taking to either reduce, remove or control those risks.
After this, there are three forms of action that can be taken:
1. If the risk would be avoided, your employer should temporarily adjust your working conditions and/or working hours if it is reasonable to do so.
2. If the risk is would not be avoided by doing the above, your employer should offer you alternative work (at the same rate of pay) if this is possible.
3. If an alternative job is not feasible, your employer should suspend you from work on full pay to protect your health and safety, and that of your unborn child.
If you are unhappy with the action your employer has taken, following your specific risk assessment, you should talk to your company?s health and safety representative, occupational health (if your company as one), your union, or the Health & Safety Executive.
