Abstract

Workers may express concerns to an OSH professional about reproductive and developmental health effects, prenatal exposure or exposure during breastfeeding.
Little guidance on risk assessments for susceptible workers is available to practicing OSH professionals.
Risk assessments for susceptible workers should be conducted as part of a comprehensive safety management system or industrial hygiene program.
This article presents a model for evaluating susceptible workers, including new and expectant parents, developed by the authors to help OSH professionals evaluate workplace risks and hazards.
