EU-OSHA stimulates debate on workplace risks to reproductivity

Various reproductive hazards can be found at the workplace, not only from chemicals, but also from physical, biological, ergonomic or other factors. While the issue of reproductive risks has largely been stigmatised on women, and mostly pregnant women, these risk factors can in fact affect both women's and men's reproductive health and some may also have effects on their children, even on the long term. Awareness at the workplace level is low and targeted information limited.
A workshop organised by EU OSHA in cooperation with the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety (ANSES) provided preliminary results of EU-OSHA research, to stimulate debate on workplace risks to reproductivity and to support a constructive dialogue between stakeholders. The research is part of a large-scale activity that the Agency is undertaking to address work-related diseases.
