Abstract

At present, workplace policies regarding reproductive hazards are not regulated directly, and inappropriate policies are occasionally corrected by legal actions or union pressures on the employers. Further, information on reproductive hazards is incomplete; however, employees have a legal right to know available information about hazards, including reproductive hazards, that they face in the workplace. Occupational health personnel play a major role in communicating information about reproductive hazards in the workplace and in implementing company policy and complying with legislation. Regulatory and case law likely will continue to evolve as many issues related to safety from reproductive hazards in the workplace have not yet been resolved.
