This programme will expose trainees responsible for a wide variety of tasks aimed at keeping oil and gas rigs running safely and efficiently. Roustabouts are responsible for tasks such as cleaning and housekeeping of work sites, working basic machinery, scraping paint and repainting, loading and unloading heavy shipments and helping with any miscellaneous tasks that arise. Roustabouts typically work difficult shifts that are more than twelve hours long, so they need to be physically fit and have the stamina for hours of manual labour.
