Prior research has shown that knowledge sharing and collaboration among professionals from different backgrounds are some ways to achieve innovation in complex industries. We surveyed 96 engineers from a range of organisations. Our findings show that the use of innovative work practices is associated with values and behaviour including knowledge sharing, use of digital collaboration tools and perceived safety climate which is the shared belief that safety is a priority. However, training in digital collaboration tools and perceptions of their utility vary widely.
