Offshore workers need to pass an Offshore Medical Examination if they wish to work offshore. The current standard is quoted as OGUK (Oil & Gas UK)
The OGUK Offshore Medical is valid for a maximun of two years and allows an employee to work in the Offshore sector. However some persons may be given certificates of shorter duration if they have medical problems that need earlier review. The OGUK medical is required by employers or companies before personnel can be deployed to some offshore workplaces around the world and is recognized by Norwegian (OLF) and Dutch Authorities (NOGEPA). The mutual recognition of medicals does not extend to mutual recognition of the additional medicals for those involved in Emergency Response duties. If you pass, you receive a certificate of fitness. This OGUK certificate has to be done by an OGUK Registered Doctor. It takes about 30 minutes with the doctor and nurse. The results will be available at the time of your medical appointment. If you are fit, you can get your fitness certificate immediately. You need to bring your id card or passport. Our price for a basic OGUK is 150€. Every aditional test (like Drug & Alcohol test, ECG, X-ray, Blood test, etc.) required by your Company, Medical Advisor, or considered by our Registered Doctor it will be charged apart.
We also provide medical certificate to undertake in-water-EBS Training (CA-EBS medical certificate), the ERT OGUK medical (emergency response teams) , "return to work" certificates and RUK Wind Turbine Medical certificate.
