Services for Legal Protection for Expectant and Nursing Mothers

TÜV Rheinland

Protection for expectant and nursing mothers has been established in Germany for a long time. The German maternity protection act allows expectant and nursing mothers to pursue their professions without endangering their own health or the health of their child. A 2017 revision of the act modernized the protection provided to expectant and nursing mothers and gave employers more responsibility for designing suitable workplaces.

What risks do expectant and nursing mothers encounter in the workplace? Our occupational physicians and occupational health and safety specialists help you draw up risk assessments. They recommend ways to adapt working conditions, and they advise mothers on a safe and health-conscious approach to their working days.

When it comes to protection for expectant and nursing mothers you can rely on our experts: their extensive know-how ensures compliance with legal and medical requirements. Show that you are a responsible employer and help mothers stay at work.
