Experience & Activities

About Christina

I am a Fellow of the IChemE and a Professional Process Safety Engineer. I am also a registered Professional Engineer with the Board of Engineers (BEM) in Malaysia and Professional Engineers Board (PEB) in Singapore.

In line with my new passion in bringing value as a Trusted Advisor to my clients, I have co-founded GRIP Global with a few like minded experienced colleagues whose key objective is to help organizations become today and future ready.

My recent past 23 years have been invested in ERM serving in various technical, operational and commercial roles – the last being the Commercial Director for Safety Services in Asia Pacific. I posses strong business operations acumen which is reflected in my successful track record in delivering excellent financial performance at country and regional levels in Managing Partner roles. I also served as a Director for all of ERM’s business entities in Malaysia

I have over 30 years experience in technical safety (Process Safety) and risk management which was predominantly spent working in the oil and gas sector providing advice relating to safety engineering during project development, commissioning and construction through to operational and decommissioning phases.

During the early 1990s, I also worked at the University of Sheffield in association with the Major Hazard Section of the UK Health & Safety Executive (UK HSE) on a funded research project which focused on gaining a deeper understanding of how management factors and critical decisions are the root causes of major industry accident events.
