The size and shape of offshore workers in the North Sea oil and gas industry has been found to be “a lot bigger” than two decades ago and larger than the average American male, according to new research.

New findings from a two-year joint research project by Robert Gordon University and industry body Oil & Gas UK have been published in an academic journal following the completion of their high-tech study last year.

It’s the first in-depth research conducted into offshore size in nearly 30 years.
