Here’s a link to the EH&S Reproductive Health website I designed: http://safetyservices.ucdavis.edu/ps/ghs/rh/reproductiveHealth
On the left side of the page is a link to Safety Nets that are not quite policy statements but pretty close! May be helpful to you.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Question about lab policy for "medical condition"
I recently got an email from a colleague asking:
“Our department is looking for model policies for students with medical conditions which might limit their participation in the laboratory (such as asthma, pregnancy, allergies, etc.). We’re getting a suggestion from “on high” to have a caveat emptor policy where we just refer students to the SDS’s and tell them that they have to make their own decisions in consultation with their physician.
Do you know of any models we might look at for review, consideration, and/or adoption?”
