About Me

Head of Courses - Safety Science

College of Science and Sustainability

School of Health, Medical and Applied Sciences


In December 2011 I retired as the Director of Work Health & Safety Policy & Legislation, after having spent over 20 years in various management and safety roles with the Queensland Government. During that time, I was involved in every major strategic and operational government safety initiative, including the national development of harmonised work health and safety laws and their implementation in Queensland.

I have also been a sessional lecturer, tutor, course developer, educational administrator and project supervisor in the TAFE system and at a number of Universities in Australia for the past 30 years or so.
