Subject: Reproductive Health and Safety in a Biotech

Hello Al l,

I’ m wondering if anyone has dealt with training scientists (chemists and biologists) on potential reproductive hazards in the laboratory.

I work f or a biotech company, and currently we have 7 pregnant employees (110 employees total). All of these employees are in the medicinal chemistry group.  It has been my experience that the pregnant employees are very cautious and knowle dgeable about the hazards they are working with, however not all of their co-worker s are.

My compa ny would like me to present a training or seminar of some sort that educates and inf orms all laboratory workers of the reproductive hazards they work with.

Has anyo ne else done this before? Any resources or suggestions?

Thank yo u.
