The Resources Regulator within Mining, Exploration and Geoscience, is the state’s work health and safety regulator for mines and petroleum sites.
This includes open-cut and underground mines, petroleum sites, quarries and extractive operations, tourist mines, opal and other small scale mines, and mining exploration activities. We also undertake compliance and enforcement activities in relation to the Mining Act 1992, with a key focus on mine rehabilitation. We were established on 1 July 2016 as a standalone regulator.
