The following can be attributed to CME Chief Executive Paul Everingham:
“The health and safety of our resource sector workforce and the communities where we operate are always our number one priority.
We are extremely grateful for the patience and understanding of our workforce, many of whom have done extended shifts away from home.
Saturday, Sunday and Monday will see many resource sector workers doing shift changeover. We want to thank our airport and airline partners for helping facilitate the change.
Mining and resources sector workers travelling to regions from the Perth and Peel area will adhere to the restrictions announced today, including wearing of masks and the requirement for takeaway food and drink service.”
