Small, white, wiggling worms in poop are usually tape worm segments. Another indication of them will be what looks like dried grains of rice where the pet sleeps, those are dried tape worm segments. If it's tapes then it shouldn't be a danger to you. My cat used to get them all the time and he slept with me, I never had a problem.
Hookworms and whipworm can be a problem for humans, but to catch them you'd have to be walking around barefoot where he pottied or handling the dirt there, it's very rare to see the adult worms in a dogs poo.
