Abstract

This paper highlights the patterns of psychosocial challenges confronting O&G workers that result in mental health issues worldwide through a systematic review of notable academic databases. This study integrated multiple research designs, and the review was based on the publication standard, namely RepOrting standards for Systematic Evidence Syntheses (ROSES). Thematic analysis was undertaken, and four emerging themes were identified: 1) demographic factors, 2) personality, 3) psychosocial risks, and 4) health conditions. The findings contributed to several theoretical and practical implications, which are essential for researchers in the O&G field and policymakers.

Keywords: psychosocial risks; personality; well-being; oil &gas
