Rotational work references the “on and off” nature of work in the oil sands. In contrast to a typical office work week of 9-5 and weekends off, work in the oil sands often includes moving between day and night shifts as well as working for longer stretches of time before rotating to a longer break. Rotational work is intended to help maximize the productivity of a project by allowing for a more continuous workforce as people shift on and off.
