Reprotoxic Hazards at Work – Free Webinar


Reproductive health is important for both men and women as it affects their overall physical, emotional, and social well-being. 🀰🏻🀱🏻 Unfortunately, many workplaces have reprotoxic hazards, potentially exposing workers to unacceptable levels of risk and endangering their health. ⚠️ Historically, the management of reproductive health risks followed the restriction of all female workers from any work with reprotoxic hazards. β™€οΈπŸš«In a modern and diverse workplace, such an approach is no longer practicable and is potentially discriminative. πŸ‘·πŸ‘·β€β™€οΈ Nowadays, a pragmatic risk-based approach is required to successfully manage reproductive hazards at work. βœ…


This webinar aims to familiarise health and safety professionals with common chemical and non-chemical reprotoxic hazards that may be encountered at work. Common toxicity mechanisms of reprotoxic chemicals will be examined, and a pragmatic risk-based approach to managing occupational exposures to reprotoxic hazards will be presented.


The following topics will be covered in this webinar:

  • Fundamentals of the reproductive system
  • Reproductive toxicity endpoints
  • Common approaches to managing reprotoxic hazards
  • Non-chemical reprotoxic hazards (biological, physical, ergonomics and psychosocial)
  • Chemicals reprotoxic hazards (heavy metals, solvents and organic compounds)
  • Threshold vs non-threshold toxicity mechanism
  • Examining OEL basis for reproductive health protection
  • The risk-based approach to controlling reprotoxic hazards
  • Changes in European legislation (CMD directive)


At the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Appreciate the basic components of the reproductive system
  • Recognise common reprotoxic hazards at work
  • Understand health effects caused by exposure to reprotoxic hazards
  • Appreciate the difference between threshold and non-threshold-acting substances
  • Confidently examine the OEL basis for reproductive health protection
  • Carry our risk-based risk assessment for reproductive health risks at work
