Companies in Bristol who employ workers on placements need to ensure that they are made aware of measures such as safety signs, an expert has warned.

Work experience schemes could lead to hidden costs if employers do not adhere to health and safety regulations. Businesses must also be conscious of the fact that unpaid workers usually have the same rights as paid workers, a specialist has told Bristol 24-7.

Andy Parsons, HR director at Bluefin, told the news provider: "Organisations whose workforce is comprised mainly of unpaid workers should ensure the correct health and safety signs are displayed and training delivered even if there is just one paid employee working in the same office."

Mr Parsons' advice follows a report by the Crewe Chronicle, which revealed that Safety Advisory Services has awarded its local outstanding achiever of the year accolade in health and safety management to a representative from Lloyds Banking Group.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800711592-ADNFCR
