Stakeholder engagement is an important focus of work for the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS). In an ever-changing environment DMIRS is constantly challenged to meet the needs and maintain the confidence of all stakeholders.
This includes people in the resources sector, people in the communities that host the industries, and the broader WA community whose lives are affected in many ways by the industries regulated by DMIRS.
The department strives to build community confidence in its work, in particular, how it achieves the best possible economic benefit for the State as well as protect the people and the environment.
At all times, DMIRS is committed to being inclusive, relevant and responsive which requires continuous stakeholder engagement and scrutiny of our management framework.
Stakeholder Identification Tool and User Guide
To support effective stakeholder consultation and collaboration, the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS) has developed a stakeholder identification and rating tool and supporting guidance to provide a transparent, consistent and repeatable methodology for stakeholder consultation and engagement.
The tool and guideline provides project managers with a consistent and accessible method to consider a range of stakeholders and will produce a map to place each stakeholder in a category. The tool and the guidance documents allow project managers to develop effective engagement strategies.
