Barrington Centre’s Fitness For Work program understands the importance of developing a workplace culture that supports the safety and well-being of employees, particularly for organisations that operate in high- risk environments. In collaboration with our clients, Barrington has developed and implemented Fit For Work (FFW) policies, procedures and training programs on the effects of:

  • Drugs
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Alcohol
  • Stress

The Barrington model reinforces the company’s own guidelines and requirements to ensure their employees and their supervisors are aware of their roles and responsibilities in maintaining a safe work environment for all.

  1. In consultation with key stakeholders, Barrington analyses current conditions, and develops appropriate strategies for implementing an effective FFW Policy and Program
  2. Barrington schedule an FFW Accredited Training Course. These workshops can be arranged as half- day, full-day, or ongoing, cyclic events. Ongoing assessment and review of FFW policies is also available
  3. Barrington arranges individual counselling for managers and supervisors to identify and manage employees with FFW concerns
  4. Barrington arranges individual assessment and ongoing counselling for employees at risk
  1. Improve safety practices
  2. Reduce and eliminate injuries and fatalities through both proactive and reactive strategies in regards to the effects of alcohol, drugs, fatigue and stress
  3. Reduce absenteeism, employee turnover, and workers compensation costs
  4. Improve morale and mental health, and thereby productivity
After the adoption of a Fitness For Work Program, the All Injury Frequency Rate (AIFR) of Rio Tinto has been in steady and promising decline, with a drop of over 10% in a single calendar year .
