The Department of Mines and Petroleum has a new vision for a safe and healthy resources industry covering all legislation administered by the Resources Safety Division.
Towards 2020 is the first of a series of high-level three-year rolling strategies to guide Resources Safety’s efforts to raise awareness and seek compliance in the Western Australian resources sector, going beyond the day-to-day inspectorate activities.
The new vision describes the goals, focus areas and measures of success for safety and health initiatives conducted by DMP. It is presented as a live online resource that is easily accessible and can be updated as emerging issues and trends are identified.
“Towards 2020 will foster a shared safety and health vision, and how it can be achieved,’ said Mines and Petroleum Minister Bill Johnston.
“It will help Resources Safety effectively engage with all of its stakeholders, and share important information on health and safety.”
The new strategy was launched at the Minesafe International 2017 conference.
