Here are some precautions you can take:

  • Avoid excessive noise or vibration on your job wherever possible.
  • Avoid temperature extremes—either hot or cold. Pregnant workers exposed to temperature extremes should be monitored closely for ill effects.
  • Avoid workplaces that operate at a high or low barometric pressure.
  • If you think your work exposes you to significant and/or continuous physical hazard, talk to your supervisor and/or occupational health and safety representative.
  • Request job modifications or a temporary job transfer where possible to reduce physical risks.
