Roustabout

The roustabout is commonly hired to perform hard manual jobs to ensure that the skilled personnel that run an expensive oil drilling rig are not distracted by peripheral tasks, ranging from any unskilled manual labor on the rig site like cleaning up location to cleaning threads to digging trenches to scraping and painting rig components.
The roustabout usually work long hard days on extended roster systems outdoors in all weather conditions. The roustabout jobs are generally hard and physically demanding. This type of work can lead to more steady employment on a drill rig crew.
