Biota (n).: The living organisms of an area; the flora and fauna together


As a company focused on remote area field studies, safety is our first concern when coordinating surveys.

The Australian environment is a challenging work setting, requiring sound risk assessment and thorough planning. We have consistently invested in this area, with a fleet of mine-equipped 4WD vehicles, UHF and HF radios, satellite phones and emergency beacons.

Fitness for work is also important for field biology, and we actively promote and support a high standard of personal health amongst our team. Biota also employs a full-time health and safety advisor to manage, promote and develop our safety processes.

We are proud to stand on our safety record at Biota, with our systems and procedures having passed multiple external audits from the most stringent industry clients, including Rio Tinto, BHP Billiton and Chevron Australia.


In 2012, Biota's safety standards were formally recognised by Chevron Australia. View our award...
