DOE-HDBK-1130-98
5. Declared pregnant worker: Embryo/fetus
After a female worker voluntarily notifies her employer in writing that she is pregnant,
she is considered a declared pregnant worker. For the purposes of radiological
protection of the fetus/embryo, DOE requires a special limit for dose to the
fetus/embryo. In addition, the DOE RCS recommends that the employer provide the
option of a mutually agreeable assignment of work tasks, with no loss of pay or
promotional opportunity, such that further occupational radiation exposure is unlikely.
This declaration may be revoked, in writing, at anytime by the declared pregnant
worker.
b. DOE limit
For a declared pregnant worker who continues working as a radiological worker,
the following radiation dose limit will apply.
1) The dose equivalent limit for the embryo/fetus (during the entire gestation
period) is 500 mrem.
a) Measures must be taken to avoid substantial variation above the uniform
exposure rate necessary to meet the 500 mrem limit for the gestation
period.
b) The DOE RCS recommends that efforts be made to avoid exceeding 50
mrem/month to the embryo/fetus of the declared pregnant worker.
2) If the dose equivalent to the embryo/fetus is determined to have already
exceeded 500 mrem when a worker notifies her employer of her pregnancy,
the worker shall not be assigned to tasks where additional occupational
radiation exposure is likely during the remainder of the pregnancy.
