The floor hand will follow the direction of the Derrick Man and Operator or other designated Company official in performing these duties.
- Servicing the Well. Each job will be slightly different, but the floor hands will frequently be required to handle tubing, rods, casing, and associated equipment such as rod strippers, polish rods, etc. The floor hands will operate rod wrenches, tongs, elevators, and associated equipment.

Physical Requirements of Job:
- Standing and Walking. The floor hands will be required to stand and move about for extended periods. Virtually all duties performed by the floor hands require standing and / or walking.
Surface Conditions. The floor hands will typically stand /walk on the ground surrounding the well, or on the metal grating of the floor. Ground conditions can include mud and obstructions. The presence of oil can create slippery conditions on the floor.
