||Stress at sea: A review of working conditions in the offshore oil and fishing industries
||July-Sep. 1989, Vol.3, No.3, p.269-285. Bibl.
||This paper reviews the literature available on the psychosocial aspects of the offshore oil and fishing industries. Both work sectors present unique problems for their employees and these are discussed with reference to risk and safety, accidents and injuries, occupational stressors, marriage and family life, noise, alcohol and drug abuse and personality. The paper concludes that although both occupations are intrinsically different, some psychosocial similarities can be observed.
