  • Being a long time away from their family
  • Transportation back and forth from the rig (helicopters are the main form of transport to offshore oil rigs)
  • Facing extreme weather conditions (from torrential rain to freezing temperatures and hurricanes)
  • Oil rigs are frequently located many miles out to sea, far away from medical facilities
  • Working with machinery that wears a high risk of fire and explosion Facing various security risks
  • Exposure to loud noises, hazardous substances or excessive vibrations
  • Unsafe accommodation.
