Occupational Reproductive Health Toolkit

Workers interested in family formation often receive insufficient or no training on the chemicals, infectious agents, physical agents, and demanding physical activities in the workplace that are linked to infertility, miscarriage, birth defects, developmental changes, and other adverse outcomes. The University of Washington Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Services (DEOHS) Occupational and Environmental Medicine Program (OEM), in collaboration with the UW DEOHS Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Unit (PEHSU) and UW DEOHS Continuing Education (CE) program, formed a multidisciplinary partnership with the American Staffing Association of WA (ASA WA) to develop a reproductive health toolkit. The resources below are designed to provide employers with information and guidance to assess harmful workplace exposures that can affect the reproductive health of all employees. Funding provided from the State of Washington, Department of Labor & Health Investment Projects.
