The Society of Radiographers (SoR) has updated this advice and guidance on the subject of health and safety and pregnancy to reflect both our overarching values of inclusive language and practice and current health and safety legislation. It covers the rights of pregnant employees and those who have recently given birth as well as statutory benefits and includes additional information from the NHS Terms and Conditions of Service Handbook.
The SoR believes this guidance is inclusive of all pregnant employees. Where reference is made to specific aspects of regulation, it is acknowledged that the language used may not be considered inclusive; however, the SoR is clear that this guidance applies to all individuals with the potential to become pregnant, who are pregnant, have given birth or are breast/chest feeding.
