Overweight oil workers asked to go on a diet
North Sea firms helper workers beat the bulge
OVERWEIGHT oil workers at two North Sea firms are being asked to go on a diet – as they are taking up too much room on helicopters.
Shell and Transocean are targeting staff with a waist size larger than 37in (94cm). Spaces on offshore flights are at a premium since the grounding of the EC225 Super Puma fleet late last year.
The firms have brought in a healthcare firm to help workers beat the bulge.
