The purpose of the study is to identify and describe uncomfortable factors and environmental conditions, as well as hazardous professional situations for fly-in-fly-out workers of an offshore oil platform in the Caspian Sea. The study was conducted on an ice-resistant offshore platform, the Caspian Sea, and was attended by 50 people (fly-in duration - 14 days). The research method is a questionnaire. The questionnaire developed by us included the following sections: general information about education and work experience; subjective assessment of the discomfort of climatic-geographical, industrial and social factors that affect workers during the fly-in period; subjective assessment of the danger of various situations that may arise during the fly-in period; subjective assessment of the hazard in the workplace and the factors contributing to its formation. As a result of the study, it was found that production factors and the likelihood of emergencies create greater discomfort for employees. In this connection, ensuring safety at the facility is of great relevance for the workers of the offshore oil production platform. Among social and household factors, the first place is the maintenance of relationships with relatives and friends, ensuring the possibility of communication and participation in family life. Positive family relationships, as well as a positive socio-psychological climate in the team are important resources for overcoming the adverse effects of environmental factors.
