Preg techs & chemicals

From:Connie McManus <>

Hi everybody!

What measures do you guys take for pregnant techs?  This particular tech is
a chemistry student (undergrad jr year) and works with all the chemicals in
one of the labs here.  There are some very nasty things...  teratogens,
etc.  We use all the regular safety precautions... goggles, lab coats, the
appropriate glove for the chemical, fume hoods, etc.  Our concern is for
her and her baby's health, but we don't know exactly how to go about doing
this, both in a political sense as well as knowing what chemicals to keep
her away from completely, etc.  Thanks for your advice.
