Its primary purpose is to bring about a more sustainable and equitable biophysical and human environment.’ International Principles for Social Impact Assessment


The Mobile Workers Guide. Fly-in/Fly-out and rotational shift work in mining. Yukon Experiences

18 December 2017
, Other Countries
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.
