    Recognize - Did the employer mention that I will receive safety training at my job? Did I see any equipment that I would need training for? Did I see warning signs, or a bulletin board for safety messages?

    Assessment - Talk to my parents about the job. Look for information (library, Internet) about the hazards of that job. Decide if I need more information from the employer about the hazards.

    Control - Confirm with the employer that there will be safety training. Decide if the hazards of the job are worth the money.
