Many types of Offshore Rig Workers can usually find Life Insurance at standard or modestly increases terms with certain insurers.

However, many factors are considered and may seem some insurers decline either individual or group policies.

Underwriters will look at the following (incomplete) list of risks/aspects:-

  • Job Role
    • Lower risk administrative/servicing (e.g. office /catering)
    • Higher risk involving machinery / working directly on the rig platform
    • Working at height
    • Working on a rig or at a refinery
    • Any changes in role / duties or employer
  • Location
    • UK waters tend to be seen as lower risk
    • Remote locations away form help / primary medical facilities
    • Where any security or conflict risks are heightened
  • Transportation
    • The distance and nature of the journey to the rig
    • The need / use of helicopters other transport

There are many other factors including the company employing, your experience and qualifications and the length of each stay on site.
