My engineering background and experience of human factors has shown me that you cannot fully understand risks unless you understand the technical and softer factors. I maintain my interest in managing risks in major hazard industries through my membership of the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) and Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (CIEHF). I talk at and attend conferences and courses and carry out my own research, which I document on my blog and Twitter

I am a member of the editorial panel for the Loss Prevention Bulletin and regularly write articles for the publication.  I was a key contributor to the author guidelines and am involved in ongoing discussions about how to increase the reach and impact of the publication.

I regularly review papers for the Ergonomics and Human Factors conference organised annually by the CIEHF.
