Activities in the project included an extensive questionnaire-based survey of personnel on the platforms with associated flotels. All employees were invited to take part except catering workers, who had been the subject of a similar study in 1983.
The project resulted in several sub-reports. One of the principal findings was that job satisfaction among Statfjord workers was significantly lower in 1985 than in 1980. On the other hand, pay and the clarity of work instructions were highlighted as positive aspects.
Other results showed a negative trend for aspects related to human interaction between employees. The researchers identified alienation as a result of more extensive and less comprehensible working conditions as a possible explanation. Another reason could be that the Statfjord workforce had become more conscious of the content of their jobs, and found it easier to express dissatisfaction.
