Introducing the New Head of the UK’s HSE’s Centre for Asset Integrity

Newly appointed, Chris will lead the development of the research and consultancy services of the UK HSE (Health and Safety Executive) which offers customers in industry and government help to safely manage their assets and infrastructure. He joins HSE to focus on delivering a number of major shared research projects between HSE and industry, including a programme of work designed to enhance the knowledge and understanding of Corrosion under Insulation (CUI). Chris brings a substantial wealth of sector and regulatory experience to the role and has spent almost 30 years developing his expertise in metallurgy, welding and corrosion activities.  He began his career working in a number of materials engineering roles in the private sector, before joining HSE, where he has spent the last 10 years regulating Great Britain’s offshore oil and gas industry as a Specialist Inspector in materials and corrosion within HSE’s Energy Division.

As well as ensuring operators complied with Major Accident Hazard regulations, his remit also included helping to develop the government’s regulatory framework for net zero-related energy technologies.

Having spent a number of years sitting on the MoD’s Defence Standards Corrosion Committee, Chris is currently involved in the HOIS (Inspection) JIP and the Energy Institute’s Corrosion Management and Asset Integrity Committee, as well as being Chair of the Welding Institute’s Process and Pressure Systems Technical Group.
