Do people live on oil rigs?

What qualifications do I need to work on oil rigs?
You must be over the age of 18 to work on an oil or gas rig. To work offshore, you must pass an offshore survival and firefighting course, also known as emergency response training, or basic offshore induction and emergency training (BOSIET).
