Please refer to the following sources of information:
A pregnant radiation worker may declare her pregnancy using the following form:
Pregnancy Declaration Form (RS 11)
This form is used by a radiation worker to formally make a voluntary pregnancy notification directly to the Radiation Safety staff. Pregnancy declaration is solely left to the radiation worker’s discretion, but is highly recommended both for the well-being of the worker and the developing fetus. This declaration should be made as soon as the radiation worker is aware of the pregnancy. Other paperwork and further consultation may be required if the radiation worker decides to submit the declaration form.
