FARM animal work will inevitably expose vets to a variety of different hazards and risks. It is the legal duty of all employers to assess the risks to the health and safety of their employees arising from these hazards and to do what is reasonably practicable to control the risks. With more female veterinary staff than ever before, employers are increasingly being faced with situations in which pregnancy has an impact on the running of their business. Fiona Lovatt and Alastair Mitchell highlight some of the issues that employers may need to consider when preparing a risk assessment relevant to the work of a pregnant farm animal vet.
