This survey was commissioned by the Offshore Contractors Association (OCA), working in conjunction with the recognised Trade Unions and ACAS. These together form the Joint Working Party (JWP) which provided guidance during the research process. The remit was to provide clear evidence for the ongoing discussion surrounding the three and three (3/3) equal time rotation between the OCA, Unions and ACAS. The commissioning of this report shows a commitment to detailed consideration of the impact of the 3/3 rotation on the workforce from both employers and unions. The survey focus was an analysis of workforce perceptions with regard to health, safety, wellbeing and work-life balance. This impartial research is designed to support ongoing work of the JWP.
