This page includes resources for FIFO and DIDO workplaces on work health and safety, workers’ compensation and COVID-19.
FIFO or DIDO workers are those whose place of work is isolated from the worker’s usual place of residence, making a daily commute impractical.
FIFO and DIDO workers often work in remote locations where food and lodging accommodation are provided for workers at the work site. Workers usually spend a fixed number of days working at the work site, followed by a fixed number of days at home.
FIFO and DIDO workers may work in a range of industries and workplaces, for example:
- mining and mineral resourcing
- remote service delivery such as health care, and
- remote infrastructure projects, such as building telecommunications networks or road and rail works.
