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.
