Visiting Partner Kinnus Paul recognized the need to recruit candidates in underserved urban communities for careers in occupational health and safety engineering (OHSE). For his project with the Visiting Partners Program, he collected data about careers in OHSE and the communities that he wished to target. He then he used that information to develop and produce a public service announcement (PSA). Kinnus intends to visit high schools in the City of Detroit and present his video. His goal is to spark the next generation’s interest in becoming occupational health and safety engineers.
