#85: How a Safety Pro Became a King (Part 2‪)‬ The Accidental Safety Pro

    • Education

Receiving the title of “Chief” in a Northern Nigerian village isn’t very common, especially for an outsider from Tanzania. Neither is it common for tribal leaders to let an outsider help with the health and safety of their community. Both happened to Industrial Hygienist Manti Michael Nota. He has dedicated his career to improving occupational health in Africa. Currently, Manti is the Industrial Hygiene Project Coordinator & Nigeria Safer Mining Project Coordinator with Occupational Knowledge International (OKI)--- he is also a doctoral candidate. Our host Jill learns how Manti spent months building trust with tribal leaders to save the lives of hundreds through his work in preventing lead poisoning- and how his love for people continues to motivate him to do more.
