New and Expectant Mothers in the Workplace Course Contents

1. Section 1: Risk Assessment

In this section we look at the two stages of risk assessment which should be done. Firstly a generic risk assessment – which is done for all employees, but must cover new and expectant mothers, regardless of whether an organisation has any. And the second stage of risk assessment - assessment after notification, which is all about re-visiting the generic risk assessment after a woman has notified her manager that she’s pregnant.

2. Section 2: Workplace Risks

This section concentrates on the four main areas which must be considered in a risk assessment to take account of new and expectant mothers – physical factors – including manual handling and seating, biological hazards – for example illnesses and bacteria, chemical hazards, such as working with lead or mercury; and working conditions – which includes working hours, travelling and work environment.

3. Section 3: Equality and Employment Law

This section covers maternity rights, such as maternity leave, maternity pay and maternity allowance. It looks at redundancy, paternity leave, adoption, surrogacy arrangements and returning to work. It refers to the Equality Act in connection with discrimination.

 Test & Certificate

This New and Expectant Mothers in the Workplace course concludes with a 20 question multiple choice test with printable certificate. In addition, brief in-course questionnaires guide the user through the sections of the training, and are designed to reinforce learning and ensure maximum user engagement throughout. As well as printable user certificates, training progress and results are all stored centrally in your LMS (Learning Management System) and can be accessed any time to re-print certificates, check and set pass marks and act as proof of a commitment to ongoing legal compliance.

I received really good customer service from iHasco when I had trouble accessing the online training - the staff were helpful and quick to respond. The training itself was user-friendly; easy to navigate and clear vocabulary.
