Personal profile


Lisette obtained her PhD from Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands in January 2004 for her research focused on near misses and minor incidents, investigating the recovery steps taken in these events that kept them from developing into more severe accidents. She also holds an MSc in Industrial Safety Management from the University of Central Missouri (1995) and an MSc in Industrial Engineering and Management Science from Eindhoven University of Technology (1994).
Lisette’s main area of expertise is human performance management, specialising in human and organisational factors that influence people’s work practices and performance in regard to safety, health, reliability, and productivity. She has worked in research, training and consultancy in a variety of industrial settings across Europe and Australia, including chemical industry, oil and gas, mining, rail transport, and hospital settings.
Currently, Lisette is lecturer at UWA teaching Introduction to Work Health and Safety in the School of Human Sciences and Occupational Health, Safety and Wellbeing, as well as Organisational Development and Work Design, in the School of Psychological Science. She is also involved in research through the Centre for Safety.
