Mining contract firm BGC has joined with FIFO Families to increase support for its 2000 FIFO workers.
The partnership will give its workers full access to services and programs provided by FIFO Families.
The agreement was announced last night during the opening of BGC Contracting's new head office.
BGC CEO Greg Heylen said the initiative demonstrates that the company takes the concept of looking after its workers seriously.
"One of our corporate values is safety, and as a part of this we have made a commitment to look after our employees' health and well-being," Heylen said.
“Those who have to spend long periods working on remote sites face unique pressures in their family lives and we have a duty to provide them with adequate support.”
The contractor has provided FIFO Families with a cheque for $115 830 as an initial investment in the company's program.
BGC Contracting has FIFO operations at the Koolyanobbing, Wodgina, Mt Webber, Spinifex Ridge, Ichthys, and Roy Hill operations.
