The Safety Science Innovation Lab was founded to capitalise on the opportunities for collaboration between science, health, business and the humanities and social sciences. Critical innovations in safety science won't necessarily come from new technologies, but from a better understanding of complexity and social construction.
What constitutes an error, a violation, or compliance, and who gets to say?
How do we prevent practitioners from becoming the second victims of adverse events?
To understand why things go wrong, should we not study how things go right and organisations are successful rather than just focusing on low-frequency negative events?
The pursuit of these sorts of questions are key to an innovative future of safety science.
