Occupational health for what were, a well work force. R. Spiller. Offshore Tech. Rept., Paper. Proc. Conf., Occupational health offshore, pages 29--33. (See abstract 459 for complete reference).

A comparison is made of the offshore scene of 30 years ago with that of today, within the limits of inadequate monitoring, then and now. Stress, bullying, change, long working hours and offshore trips and lifestyle are identified as major factors that now have to be addressed if the ageing work force is not to be compromised. Typical stress situations are listed, and the responsibility of the management of many of the operators is not an easy factor within an international market.
