More than 50,000 workers in Australia’s resources industry are employed on a fly-in, fly-out basis. However, federal Resources Minister Keith Pitt expects the sector to be much less reliant on FIFO workers once the coronavirus crisis is over. He says they are likely to focus more on using workers who live in close proximity to resources projects. However, he concedes that FIFO workers will still be needed for projects in remote areas. Restrictions on crossing state borders have prompted some mining companies to significantly to increase the shifts of their FIFO workers.
