This resource provides information for caregivers on how to perform their jobs without becoming patients themselves. This text will introduce the caregiver to hazards unique to the healthcare environment and will provide practical measures to make the work safer. Caregivers who are knowledgeable about providing a safe working environment for themselves will likely be better equipped to provide safe care environments for their patients. Practical prevention tips for most of the common healthcare hazards, including hazardous substances, stress, workplace violence and shiftwork, are provided. Caregivers will be provided with easy-to-understand information on how to use transmission-based precautions to prevent becoming ill themselves, and will have an opportunity to learn why the traditional approach of using ?body mechanics? training is ineffective in preventing strain and sprain injuries, and will be introduced to new, safe, and effective ways to move patients more easily and safely. Easy and safe for the caregiver is also easy and safe for the patient! The text will also include career-related information such as how to select a safe employer, how to improve safety in the current work-setting, and worker rights under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
