Craig is an independent consultant providing governance, strategy and leadership advice in safety and risk management. The founder and Chair of New Zealand’s Community of Safety Innovation (an enterprise supported by the Business Leaders’ H&S Forum, NZ Institute of Safety Management and WorkSafe), he brings over 30 years’ experience managing safety in high-hazard industries. From nuclear submarines and highly radioactive waste, to high-pressure gas pipelines and oil rigs, Craig has written safety cases and managed safety for some of the world’s most hazardous operations.
As a strong advocate of challenging conventional safety thinking and author of the book Challenging the Safety Quo, Craig is known for bringing a pragmatic approach to translate health and safety management theory into workable solutions.
Around the Board table, he considers strong governance to be the foundation for successful business outcomes, which are inseparable from good health and safety outcomes. Governance provides the opportunity to set the vision and culture for a holistic approach that views safe, efficient, ethical and profitable outcomes as related properties of work done well.
Outside of work, Craig competes in Masters’ Athletics, squeezing events into the small gaps that arise between injuries.
