Extreme weather, isolation and long, gruelling rosters are all commonplace in mining. To offset the arduous working conditions, many miners need to find ways to relax and switch off during their downtime.

Alastair Lynch, former Fitzroy and Brisbane Lions football legend, knows what it's like to balance a physically demanding job with his own health and wellbeing needs. In the video above Alastair talks about giving miners the home comfort of Foxtel to enjoy in their free time and how the Foxtel Business iQ product provides more than just great entertainment.

With Foxtel, it's easy to entertain, amuse, inspire, and engage miners with unparalleled live sports coverage, the latest movies, popular TV series, brilliant documentaries, or the latest news. With over 1,000 movies and over 4,000 TV episodes available, Foxtel gives miners a way to relax in their rooms and take their mind off the stresses that come with being on site. Connecting them to the shows they love, the live sport they can't live without and all the latest news helps to connect them to their life at home too.

With 24/7 access to the most popular sports in Australia and globally, miners can keep up with their team and stay connected with sport from around the world. With the ability to pause live games, they can take a shower or grab a bite to eat after a long shift, never missing a moment of the action. Only on Foxtel can miners watch every game of every round of the Toyota AFL Premiership and the NRL Telstra Premiership Seasons. The Business iQ now has integrated casting so miners can view their own content on the room's television rather than trying to watch it on their smaller devices.

Foxtel's platform also allows mining operators to easily promote site facilities and activities to their workers, as well as share critical information with them. Employee messaging and emergency warnings can also be displayed. Whether it's a reminder about the latest UFC Fight Night in the wet mess, or mandatory safety training, the platform has been designed to service the information needs of businesses.

Research has shown that when facilities and amenities on mine sites are seen as high quality, workers feel valued, more motivated and engaged with their jobs.

So, when your workforce want to switch off after a hard day's graft, let them switch on to the most revolutionary entertainment experience available. Visit www.foxtel.com.au/biqm or call 1300 804 360 for more information.
