Abstract: 

According to the definition provided by World Health Organization (WHO), general health constitutes physical, psychological and social features. Therefore, health is a multilateral concept. The present study is an attempt to evaluate the general health of the workers of Iranian Offshore Oil Co., and determine the factors influencing it. Further the study applies, as its theoretical framework, theories such as William Goad’s role pressure theory, Merton’s role conflict, Marx’s alienation and energy scarcity. The study is a descriptive and derivational one, in which data gathering was performed through a survey. The population constitutes the whole workers of Iranian Offshore Oil Co. employed before 2010, of which 500 persons were chosen by cluster sampling method to fill in the questionnaire. GHQ questionnaire was applied in the study. The validity of questionnaire was assessed through formal validity, and its consistency through Internal Consistency (Cronbach’s Alpha). Among the most important findings of the study we may mention the significant difference between work area (platform or island) and type of work (shift-based or fixed-hours based) in GHQ test, in addition to the significant difference between on/ off basis work and general health of the workers and their families. Therefore, it is necessary to pay attention to type of work and work area in order to promote the general health status of the personnel.
