WorkRite for new & expectant mothers


Friday 12 February 2016


Ellie Hale


Mothers make up more than 20% of the UK workforce and over 340,000 women take maternity leave every year - however - many workplaces are unsure about how to advise new and expectant mums of the health and safety steps they can take and how to promote well-being during pregnancy and after returning to work following maternity leave.

Our next webinar will take you through our awareness course for new and expectant mothers. Our speaker, Ellie, will be talking about the changing body, legal duties of employers to their pregnant staff and what maternity leave means.

We will also take you through some most frequently asked questions such as: What duty of care do employers have when their staff become pregnant, or when they return to work after having a baby? Are you ensuring that your workforce are properly informed?, What special steps need to be taken in the workplace to minimise risks and ensure fire safety? How do you promote well-being during pregnancy and keep your staff fit and healthy?.

Register now and find out how our New & Expectant Mothers e-learning course can help ensure you are carrying out your duty of care to new mums and mums-to-be in your workforce – and how it can be used to train line managers and teammates as well.

The webinar will last for about half an hour, including time for questions and answers.
