Online induction tool provides handy tips for FIFO staff

AN online induction tool launched on Thursday will aim to boost the emotional resilience of fly-in, fly-out workers.

Developed by Mining Family Matters, the induction tool, which is available across the country, features professional advice from a psychologist and practical tips for keeping employees happy and healthy despite regular separation from loved ones.

Mining Family Matters creator Alicia Ranford said Making It Work When You Work Away offered proactive advice on key issues including the importance of setting goals, overcoming mood swings, avoiding arguments about how R&R is spent, and staying connected without 24/7 phone access.

"It's designed to forewarn employees about the most common emotional pressures faced by FIFO workers, and arm them with simple strategies to overcome any issues that do arise," Ms Ranford said.
