Ms Elsjebe Mostert
She work for the CSIR (Council for Scientific and Industrial Research) from 2001 to 2005 doing research in occupational health and safety for the mining sector. The research included the introduction of low emission diesel fuel into stopping sections within the mines, mine ventilation design and evaluation, ergonomics and Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome. From the CSIR she moved to the PBMR project (Pebble Bed Modular Reactor) where she was a specialty engineer with focus on human factors engineering. The PBMR was a new generation nuclear power plant that was modular in nature and designed by a wholly South African team. The focus of the work was on the introduction of human factors and safety aspects early in the design phases of a nuclear plant, a tasks that has traditionally been performed as a retrofit after completion of a project.
Currently M's Mostert is a senior lecturer in the Department of Business Management with Safety Management as core focus and is a registered professional engineer with the Engineering Council of South Africa
