This study provides a summary of key issues raised in prior reviews of the literature and research on the impacts of fly-in/fly-out, driveIn/drive-out (FIFO/DIDO) work practices and, where appropriate, supplement this with other recent literature found. Furthermore, given the nature of ACELG’s modus operandi, the...
