Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

At Fortescue, the health and safety of our workforce, their families and the communities in which we operate is our highest priority.

We have a robust COVID-19 Management Plan in place to ensure we can continue to operate safely. This is regularly reviewed in light of State and Federal Health requirements and the ongoing COVID-19 situation.

Our Incident Management Team is monitoring the latest guidelines from the Western Australian Government and we continue to provide regular updates to team members across our Perth offices and operational sites in the Pilbara.



Currently we have a range of measures in place, which include:

  • Providing our team, contractors, suppliers and key stakeholders with the latest information as the COVID-19 outbreak continues
  • Sending direct text messages to employees and contractors relating to immediate changes as required
  • Strict hygiene and physical distancing measures

  • Before visiting a Fortescue site or our Fortescue Hive, all personnel are required to undergo mandatory COVID-19 screening which includes receiving a COVID-19 test and completing a health declaration
  • Additional protective measures at our Fortescue Hive to protect our team members including the use of perspex shields
  • Providing team members who choose to live outside Western Australia with the option to relocate, including a relocation allowance for those who chose to move permanently


Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Fortescue had already adopted flexible work practices that enable team members to work from home, along with other options including flexible start and finish times.
