We have not had this problem exactly, but one could address it the same way we do with pregnancy and experiments which involve the use of known or suspected reproductive toxins. We either give the student data or use simulated experiments that represent the same concept to keep the student out of the lab for that day.
A college has a student with documented disabilities who will need to bring oxygen with her to class (and Lab!).
I got this from a colleague, and my first concern would be in a lab with open flames.
Have any academics had to work with this and how did you handle it?
Are there any specific OSHA regulations that they need to address?
