All persons working offshore shall be examined periodically and classified as medically fit to work in the offshore environment.


Our assessments include a personal examination by an examining physician who is approved by Offshore Energies UK (previously Oil and Gas UK).


These examinations have reference to the UK offshore industry. Where organisations or companies choose to apply them to other geographical locations, they must satisfy themselves as to the applicability of the guidance to such locations.



The Medical Examination


The medical examination will always include the following:

Photographic ID of the examinee

A comprehensive medical, social and occupational history



Visual Acuity

Body Mass Index (BMI)

Appropriate clinical examination

Further investigations (eg blood tests, Electrocardiograph (ECG), spirometry) may be required to clarify clinical findings but are not a routine requirement
