Meet our Ross Star, Egil!


Egil Rygg

Hired Ross Star since:

March 2022

I started my journey as a safety delegate in high school – taking the next step into the role as Military police in the Norwegian military and the United Nations Interim force in Lebanon.

Came home from the warzone and started working as a security guard and gained trade certificates as security guard and for installing electrical security systems (Camera surveillance, burglar and fire detection systems). Joined the oil industry as technician and project engineer for gas and fire detection systems and moved on to the role as Safety Officer offshore in fixed rotation.

Now I work in HSE department onshore, and I’m very happy with being able to come home to see my family every day.

I try to extract learning from big happenings in my life.
Remember the highlights and to an extent live my own life together with the most important gangsters I know, my family and friends.

1. Briefly describe a normal workday for you?

Support customer operations within HSE and take part in Quality check and Assurance for the documentation that is to be forwarded customers.
Try to squeeze in a game or two with shuffleboard with colleagues in the Stavanger office.

2. What is the best thing about being a Ross Star (working in Ross)?

Working with HSE in an environment together with colleagues with all sorts of competence.

3. What do you like to do when you're not at work?

In the weekends I spend my time together with my wife at the cabin in Lysefjorden.
We bought a cabin project last summer and current working on some future plans for upgrades.
This summer project is a new roof, paint the cabin and redo parts of the terrace.
Next up will be the integration of water and a fixed toilet solution. The cabin is a project that I hope will never end.

On the cabin or not I always find time to go hiking. Being stuck in an office all day during working hours requires some physical activity in the time off.

4. Do you have a hidden talent?

If I have its very hidden and yet to be found 😉 If staying positive even when “shit hits the fan” is a talent, then I have one 😉

5. What do you think will be the most important thing we do at Ross Offshore into the future?

Listen to customers need and being able to provide the competence required. Build competence also outside the oil industry.

6. Which of our values is your favorite, and why?

SAFE – Cause every day is a gift, not a given right. We all have a role to play.
