In your FIFO ar­ti­cle there were two men­tions of drug tak­ing and drunk­en­ness, im­ply­ing that th­ese are part of the FIFO cul­ture. This is far from the case. I work as a con­trac­tor in many SA mines – all have at least ran­dom drug and al­co­hol checks. Many have manda­tory al­co­hol tests be­fore a shift. You will also find that strict poli­cies are in place re­gard­ing per­sons af­fected by al­co­hol or drugs board­ing the air­craft to or from the site. Ron Hoey Old Reynella
