Occupational Health Internship Program


Gain hands-on experience with workplace safety and health issues through this paid summer internship opportunity.

Teams of two students are placed with a union or worker organization to investigate job-related health and safety problems among workers, often employed in an under-served or a high hazard job. Projects are designed to maximize interaction between workers and students. OHIP is an applied research experience, where students learn about the occupational safety and health field from the workers’ perspective. Project work emphasizes worker interview and work site evaluations. At the end of the project, teams provide a “give back” product to the workers and their host union/worker organization, present their project at a national NIOSH video conference, and produce a final report. Commitment is full-time, including possible evenings or weekends.
