I am pleased to present our Annual Report for 2019-20.

As evidenced in this annual report, DMIRS continues to play a unique role in supporting a safe, fair and responsible future for the Western Australian community, industry and resources sector.

We demonstrate a shared commitment to our values – being responsive, forward thinking, fair, ethical, transparent and respectful to enhance the way we work as a regulator, service provider and policy maker.

Any reflection on the past 12 months will be dominated by the impact that COVID-19 has had on our world since its appearance as a global issue.

We were challenged to be more resilient, flexible and responsive to the evolving COVID-19 situation as we continued to perform and deliver our wide range of services, including key regulatory functions, and progressed many Government legislative and other reforms.

This annual report recognises and celebrates all of our achievements through 2019–20. These achievements would not have been possible without the hard work and commitment of our people. I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved together – in our teams, across the department, and as part of the broader Western Australian public sector.

I encourage you to read our report and learn more about the wide variety of work we do across the department. 

David Smith
Director General
