An every day story in the life of a N. Sea commuter

offshore survival suits BPThis is not the standard suit that most people wear on their daily commute to work.

But people who take up jobs on offshore oil and gas platforms hardly have an average commute to their workplace.

Waiting at Aberdeen airport for their helicopter journey out to the North Sea, offshore workers daily don emergency breathing systems as part of their survival suits.

A series of new safety measures have been introduced to travel offshore, including a ban on hooded sweaters, shorts and sandals.
