Subject: Pregnancy Announcement and Request for Health and Safety Assessment

Dear [Recipient’s Name],

I hope this email finds you well. I am writing to inform you that I am currently expecting a baby. As I enter this exciting phase of my life, I wanted to discuss with you any potential health and safety risks that may arise during my pregnancy or that could affect the well-being of my baby.

I understand that as my employer, you have a legal obligation to ensure the health and safety of all employees, including pregnant women. Therefore, I kindly request that you conduct a thorough assessment of my work environment and take reasonable action to eliminate or minimize any potential risks that may pose a threat to my health or the health of my unborn child.

I believe it would be beneficial for us to meet and discuss the specific health and safety risks associated with my job and how we can work together to mitigate them. This meeting would provide an opportunity for me to share any concerns I may have and for us to explore potential adjustments or accommodations that may be necessary to ensure a safe and healthy working environment.

To give you some context, I have done some preliminary research on the potential risks that pregnant women may face in the workplace. These can include exposure to harmful chemicals, lifting or carrying heavy objects, prolonged standing or sitting in uncomfortable positions, excessive noise levels, and stress. However, I am not an expert in this area, and I trust that you will be able to provide further guidance and insights based on your knowledge and experience.

I would be grateful if you could arrange a meeting at your earliest convenience. This would allow us to address any concerns promptly and ensure that we are both well-informed and prepared to handle any potential risks throughout my pregnancy.

Thank you for your attention to this matter, and I look forward to discussing this further with you.

Warm regards,

[Your Name]
