Abstract Data from a survey of 909 persons employed at eight United Kingdom oil and gas processing sites are reported. The survey included a range of psychosocial measures including physical environment and job characteristics (workload, autonomy, task/skill variety, clarity), safety measures and procedures, job satisfaction and future job prospects, and mental and physical health. The different shift rotation patterns practiced at the sites participating in the study are analysed in terms of job satisfaction, work-family conflict, perceived performance impairment and sleep quality. Finally, data from offshore and onshore personnel are compared.
