From Friday 14 October 2022, it is no longer mandatory to isolate if you test positive to COVID-19.
The removal of mandatory isolation does not impact on the duties of an employer to do all that is reasonably practicable to minimise the risks of COVID-19 at the workplace, including asking workers to stay at home when unwell.
Information on these pages is currently being reviewed and will be updated shortly.
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.
