Draft code targeting FIFO mental health open for comment

March 6, 2018 Tara

The department of Mines, Regulation & Safety in Western Australia is seeking feedback on a draft code of practice for mentally healthy workplaces for fly-in fly-out (FIFO) workers in the resources and construction sectors in Western Australia.

The code is designed for those who have functions or responsibilities to manage exposure, as far as practicable, to psychosocial hazards and factors at workplaces, including the implementation of appropriate controls; strategies and programs for intervention, recovery and promotion of wellbeing; and monitoring and review (e.g. statutory reporting).

More information, including a copy of the draft code, is available on the department’s consultation page.
