In brief: Protect yourself.
Assuming you are generally healthy and have a normal immune system, you can minimize your MRSA risk by following a few simple precautions: wash your hands and other exposed skin surfaces whenever they get dirty.
Wear disposable gloves whenever you handle anything dirty (like dirty laundry). Treat any cuts and scrapes promptly, and keep them covered with a bandaid while at work.
