Risk and safety analysis
The Occupational Safety and Health Department is empowered to carry out a risk analysis of all your working conditions and working environment. Certain physical, chemical or biological agents can interfere with the development of the foetus, as of the first few weeks of pregnancy; that is why the risk analysis must be carried out as early as possible, as well as if you are trying to become pregnant.
Information and contact point:
In order to be able to carry out a risk analysis, you can contact the Health & Safety Department, either personally or via trusted persons, who will guarantee you discretion and confidentiality. You will then be asked to complete the hazard identification document (available in three languages).
Do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
