Drew Rae

Lecturer, School of Humanities and Social Science, Griffith University

Drew is Manager of the Safety Science Innovation Lab, where he directs and teaches into the postgraduate programs in Safety Leadership.

Drew’s research brings a critical cross-disciplinary approach to the examination of myths, rituals and bad habits that surround safety practice. Drew’s recent publications challenge the common assumption that risk assessments and incident investigations lead to safer work.

He suggests alternatives based around a better understanding of the constraints that prevent safe innovation, and the resources that support successful work.
