Power 250

As Professor of Occupational Health Psychology, Craig is interested in the effect of workplaces and working on people’s health and psychological wellbeing. He also increasingly researches the relationship between work and crime – particularly how offenders use their occupations to facilitate offending behaviours and this has led to an increase in research using statistical techniques such as multidimensional scaling of offence behaviours.

Craig contributed to both of the leading UK textbooks on occupational health and many Health and Safety Executive reports.

Specific interests include unusual occupations, work-related suicide, technology change, pesticide exposures, working hours, stress, research techniques, neurobehavioural methods and psychological assessments.

Craig is Honorary Senior Lecturer at the Institute of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (University of Birmingham); Former Research Director of an independent health research consultancy; and a Member of the ESRC Peer Review College. He is also a former Associate editor of Occupational & Environmental Medicine (a BMJ journal); Vice-Chair of various NHS Local Research Ethics Committees, and former editor in Chief of the International Journal of Rural Psychology.
