  22. Work Experience Concerns Washington Woods/Riverside (In general for all worksites) When vacuuming , the cord should not cross the hallway -If so a barricade should be placed used to place across the hallway. When working in the building, should our students be in the way of a resident, the student and the paraprofessional should stop work activity and allow the resident to continue. Review City of Midland’s Contractor and Safety Program Booklet

  23. Work Experience Concerns 1. Staff Training/Retraining 2. Worksite Changes 3. Washington Woods/Riverside 4. Use of Chemicals

  24. Use of Chemicals Use common sense when selecting cleaning products Use mild cleaning solutions such as soap and water and diluted glass cleaner Use protective eye wear and gloves when appropriate Consider the environment and the student

  25. Work Experience Concerns 1. Staff Training/Retraining 2. Worksite Changes 3. Washington Woods/Riverside 4. Use of Chemicals 5. What Employers Look For

  26. What Employers Look For Good Social Skills (mannerisms) Appropriate Work Behavior (skilled and on task) Attendance (dependability) If we concentrate on the above, our students will have a greater chance in obtaining employment in the future.

  27. Work Experience Concerns 1. Staff Training/Retraining 2. Worksite Changes 3. Washington Woods/Riverside 4. Use of Chemicals 5. What Employers Look For 6. Proper Attire (staff and students)

  28. Proper Attire (students) Refrain from sending students to work when they are not appropriately dressed, shaved, cleaned, or deodorized. Students should avoid wearing shorts to worksites. This also includes sandals or open toe footwear regardless of how nice the weather is. Extra clothing should be stored in the classroom. In the event that a student (or staff) arrives to school inappropriately dressed, they should not attempt to go to their worksite unless extra clothing has been provided in the classroom. Do not send students to worksites when they are ill.

  29. Proper Attire (staff) Be aware that many of our worksites have specific dress codes. Not only for our students but also for our paraprofessionals and job coaches. If you are working at a C.B.I. worksite, you are required to follow the dress codes of the organization where you work. If students are required to wear a name tag, you are encouraged to do the same. Be sensitive to our businesses dress codes. I encourage you to be positive role models for our students!

  30. Remember a negative impression lasts longer than a positive one!
