Welcome to the Mobile Workers Guide – Fly-in/Fly-out and Rotational Shift Work in Mining.This guide is designed for people who work in the extractive industry (and their families) and who fly or drive as long-distance commuters to a mining camp. These forms of labour mobility are called FIFO (Fly-in/Fly-out) or DIDO (Drive-in/Drive-out). Some workers come from nearby communities while others have to fly for many hours to get to work. The Guide contains useful information also for companies and communities affected by FIFO/DIDO. Spending ‘half of one’s life’ in camp and going back and forth from home means having to deal with a very specific life-style. Life in camp is very different from life at home, where family and friends are around. The mining sector goes through boom and bust cycles, which strongly affect the stability of jobs. The Mobile Workers Guide describes ways to develop skills to get through these ups and downs. It contains many useful tips for people who want to pursue a long-term professional career in this industry.
