Still working hard in dangers place

Hi, iam a Electrician and Instrument Technican. Iam 6months Pregnaunt. My boss still sends me in very loud and dangerous place. He thinks that if i stand there work with someone its not dangerous for me. Some places are extremly hot, at night my feet are so swollen from the standing around , how can i tell him that iam exhausted and can do the work any more? And can i ask for a nother position for time being?
