Towards 2020 is the Department of Mines and Petroleum's vision for a safe and healthy resources industry and covers all legislation administered by the Resources Safety Division.

It 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.

Towards 2020 describes the goals, focus areas and measures of success for safety and health initiatives undertaken by the regulator and is presented as a live online resource that is easily accessible, and can be updated as emerging issues and trends are identified.

The strategy was launched by Mines and Petroleum Minister Bill Johnston at the Minesafe International 2017 conference.

"Towards 2020 will foster a shared safety and health vision, and how it can be achieved," Mr Johnston said.

"It will help Resources Safety effectively engage with all of its stakeholders, and share important information on health and safety."
