The Workplace Safety Program Mistake You Don't Want to Make
Some employers try to create a safe workplace by rewarding employees when there are no work-related injuries. This is a mistake.

These requirements are intended to ensure that the intern is receiving a valuable learning experience rather than providing free labor. Be aware that workers cannot waive their right to be paid, even if they are begging to work for free to gain experience.
