Abstract
How to use this handbook: 1. Look over the checklist and see which Safety Tips apply to you. Go to those pages to find out: What to watch out for and the tools & tips that can help you both stay safe. 2. Read "How to talk to each other about safety" on p. 6 for suggestions on how to communicate your concerns to each other. Each Safety Tip also has a "talk it over" section with examples of what you could say. 3. Keep track of good ideas to make your work safer. Fill out the to do list at the end of each Safety Tip. 4. Create your own action plan for safety on page 82. Keep it on hand to remind you both about staying safe. 5. Review the find help section at the end of each Safety Tip and the resources starting on p. 75 for local groups that can help you. Working with the consumer is the best, but not the only, way to use the handbook. You can use it on your own or with others such as family members or guardians. Remember, staying safe on the job is important not only for you, but also the people you care for. Congratulations on taking time to Care for Yourself while Caring for Others. (Also available in Spanish (20038757) and Chinese.)
