Ian Grainger was appointed to the post of Health & Safety Compliance Manager in 2011. He manages and monitors health and safety for the organisation as a whole, and co-ordinates the work of AgilityUK Ltd., MOLA's professional health and safety consultants.

Ian joined the Museum of London in 1985, and from 1998-2011 was a Field Manager, with overall responsibility for the management of field staff. In this role, he held overall responsibility for the recruitment of field staff and their deployment to projects, including the appointment of supervisors. He was also ultimately responsible for Field team logistics – the supply and delivery of equipment to our projects.

Prior to becoming Field Manager, Ian worked as a Senior Archaeologist and supervised a wide range of archaeological projects, largely concentrating on the later medieval and early post-medieval period. He is the principal author for three MOLA Monographs generated by his work on the Royal Mint site at Tower Hill. These cover the internationally important Black Death cemetery there together with the Cistercian abbey of St Mary Graces and the Royal Navy victualling yard which also, subsequently, occupied the site. Ian holds an IOSH Certificate in Managing Safely and a NEBOSH Certificate in Construction Health and Safety. He is a deputy Health and Safety Officer for the Federation of Archaeological Managers and Employers.

The Site Managers at MOLA have extensive experience of excavation on construction sites and direct our onsite archaeological investigations. They work closely with our clients and other onsite contractors to ensure our archaeological work fits into the overall work programme and, where necessary, problem-solve as issues arise.
