In 2011, an inquiry was established into the use of 'fly-in, fly-out' (FIFO) and 'drive-in, drive-out' (DIDO) workforce practices in regional Australia. This report presents the findings and recommendations of the inquiry. The inquiry investigated a range of aspects, including: the extent and projected growth in FIFO/DIDO work practice; costs and benefits for companies and individuals as compared to resident workforces; the impact on local communities, including community wellbeing, services and infrastructure; the impact on communities who are providing such workforces; provision of services, infrastructure and housing; and potential opportunities for non-mining communities with narrow economic bases to diversify their economic base by providing a FIFO/DIDO workforce.
Chair: Tony Windsor.
