Drugs Test For Working Offshore

My training partner is thinking about trying to get work on the rigs , he is also thinking about starting an test e and d'bol cycle shortly. He's been told that you get drug tested as part of the recruitment. Would this include performance enhancing drugs ? any input , especially from people who actually work offshore would be appreciated





Oh and just for the record I am talking about my training partner. I have thought about trying to get offshore myself and yes I have tried gear before but on this occasion I really am talking about my training partner

No biggie like, there are a lot worse things for you than using steroids, I mean I probably shouldn't have been smoking crack or getting into bar fights at your age TBH  - drab4

    AFAIK it's usually only recreational drugs that employers check for.

    All I need is a big gun and a coupe that's crazy quick...

    Im currently doing a p.t.s course with network rail and had to have a drugs test. This is what they tested for. Alcohol, Amphetamine, Barbiturates, Benzodiazepines, Cannabis, Methadone, Opiates, Propoxyphene, Mdma Ectasy,

    I know its not same job but i wouldnt mind betting this is the standard test for most work places.

    I would refer you to the second paragraph of my initial post where I clearly state that on this occasion my own dubious behaviour is not the matter in hand

    The AAS test is very expensive and not usually part of an initial drugs test for employment, it's only ever required in exceptional circumstances and shouldn't be included for offshore test (most likely)

    This is from a Provo Sergeant in the Marines so his info is based on armed forces regs
