||As of now, few occupational factors have been clearly identified as presenting a risk to reproduction in pregnant women. Nevertheless the most important factors that warrant surveillance are lead and solvents for women working in the chemical industry and some infectious agents (German measles, listeriosis, toxoplasmosis and HIV) for health care personnel. Measurements of the exposure intensity should accompany the clinical diagnosis of symptoms such as migraine, nausea or a sense of foul smells.
