The Cornell University Environment, Health and Safety department (EHS) works to ensure that task duties do not result in unsafe exposures to reproductive hazards. EHS professionals can review your work areas to evaluate potential chemical, biological and physical exposures and provide recommendations to ensure potential exposures do not pose a reproductive risk.
Female and male employees and students who are contemplating having children, pregnant or nursing women may discuss with EHS reproductive concerns they may have and schedule a reproductive health evaluation of their work and research areas.
Employees and students interested in discussing possible reproductive hazards or scheduling an assessment should either contact Brandi Kissel (bek66) at 607-254-7478 or complete a Reproductive Health Hazard Assessment Questionnaire.
The pre-evaluation questionnaire can be filled and submitted via e- mail as CONFIDENTIAL to Brandi Kissel, Sr. Industrial Hygienist (firstname.lastname@example.org). EHS will review the completed form and schedule a meeting to discuss the questionnaire and answer any questions. This is best accomplished in the work place, but can be done external in order to meet the individual's needs.
