Mentally healthy workplaces for fly-in fly-out (FIFO) workers in the resources and construction sectors

This publication is for: 
Employee / workerEmployer

This code of practice provides guidance on creating and maintaining a mentally healthy workplace through:

  • providing an environment that promotes good health and wellbeing 
  • the application of a risk management process to avoid or minimise the harm from psychosocial hazards and risk factors and develop a mentally healthy workplace
  • developing response strategies (intervention) for workers when there are concerns regarding work-related stress or exposure to psychosocial hazards and risk factors
  • providing an environment that supports recovery. 
  • It applies to workplaces in Western Australia that utilise fly-in fly-out (FIFO) work arrangements. This includes:
    • resources operations (minerals and petroleum sectors) that are engaged in activities such as exploration, construction, mining or processing, or support such activities (e.g. drilling contractors, facilities management) 
    • construction work not related to resources operations.
