Engaging in fly-in, fly-out (FIFO) work comes with its own set of challenges, and one significant hurdle is the sense of isolation faced by spending extended periods away from their loved ones.
In Australia, more than 100,000 workers are operating in a FIFO environment across the country. Consistent and effective communication is critical in addressing the psychosocial impacts of work-based isolation and keeping workers connected to home.
Ensuring that FIFO workers can stay connected with their friends, family, and daily lives at home is vital. MarchNet recognises the importance of providing a fast, reliable internet service as an integral component of any remote work camp, currently catering to numerous worksites across Australia.
Imagine being able to FaceTime your children, message friends, stay connected to social networks, or keep up with the latest TV series away from home – the psychosocial benefits are enormous. For worker camp operators, offering fast, reliable internet to your workers can be the difference in attracting workers in a tight labour market.
Remote sites with FIFO workers are frequently situated in areas with limited to no digital connectivity. MarchNet addresses this challenge by offering a variety of communication solutions tailored to specific locations, bandwidth requirements, coverage requirements, and budget constraints. Fibre and microwave connectivity are commonly employed access types in these remote areas, providing dedicated connections to MarchNet’s Core Network and the Internet.
Ultimately, the result is a content and connected workforce that can return to camp with the assurance of connectivity with friends and family, and the ability to stream high-quality content without interruptions. After a demanding shift, FIFO workers can rest easy knowing they can access the internet without dropouts.
