Workplace Hazards and Reproductive Health

NIOSH has created a new publication designed to inform employees of the steps they can take to protect against reproductive health risks in the workplace. These steps include practicing good hygiene and preventing chemical exposures. This publication, "The Effects of Workplace Hazards on Female Reproductive Health," lists both chemical and physical agents and disease-causing agents that are reproductive hazards for women in the workplace. This document provides answers to the following questions:

  • What are reproductive hazards for female workers?
  • How does the female reproductive system work?
  • What reproductive problems might be caused by workplace exposures?
  • How are workers and their babies exposed?
  • How are families exposed?
  • How can exposures be prevented?

Additional information is available from NIOSH and a copy of this publication can be accessed at www.cdc.gov/niosh
