Dr. Oloke is a chartered civil engineer who has extensive interest in sustainable construction research, knowledge transfer and consultancy. Prior to this time, he had worked internationally as a consultant and lecturer in civil/infrastructural engineering. However, he joined the University of Wolverhampton in September 2000 and between 2003 and 2005, the built environment department was part of a £2.5m European Social Funding (ESF) programme under which he was responsible for the training of Managers of Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs).
He facilitated training on various aspects of Construction Health and Safety and Electronic Project Management. As an off-shoot of the work, several Journal Papers focused on enhancing the development of practitioners' knowledge of Construction Health and Safety Practice were published in the Journal of Education in the Built Environment.
Furthermore, three PhD students were also commissioned to work on Accident Prevention, Competence Assessment and Cost-Benefits of Health and Safety Programme Implementation between 2003 and 2009 out of which several Journal publications were completed and further research work was commissioned. Such publications included those in the: International Journal of Safety, ASCE Journal of Construction Engineering and International Journal of IT in Construction (IT-CON) amongst others. Outcome of these programmes were all also published in the Construction Industry Board (CIB) Health and Safety Research Round up. Other similar PhDs had since been delivered including Health and Safety in Lean Construction and others between 2010 and 2013 with a wide ranging Journal and Conference publications.
He has also been a member of the Institution of Civil Engineers' (ICE) Health and Safety Expert Panel and the Health and Safety Register from 2005 till Date and further serves as a Reviewer for intending Registrants (chartered civil engineers). His work with the ICE allowed him to be engaged as a chapter author and co-editor of the ICE Construction Health and Safety Manual which was published in June 2010. The second Edition has also been finalised for publication (2015). His research interests now span a wide range of built environment sustainability themes and is engaging more with industrial collaborators and institutions across Europe and the rest of the world.
