Medical fitness for the offshore worker PDF Print E-mail
Posted by Dr. AbdelRahman Dagig in Offshore Fitness on December 08, 2011

Every offshore worker must undergo and pass a medical examination which classifies them as medically fit to work in the offshore environment. Different offshore authorities have different requirements. For UK waters, only physicians who are approved by the United Kingdom Offshore Operators Association Health Advisory Committee should carry out the examination.

 Offshore workers must be able to: 

- Safely undertake their assigned duties

- Escape from platforms or helicopter in emergency 

- Take part in offshore survival training

- Pose no significant health or safety risks to others

- Require no medical treatment that cannot be provided offshore

- Need no medical treatment with significant side effects for offshore work

- Be free from risk of sudden illness that cannot be treated offshore

The offshore medical certificate, as it is commonly known, is only valid for a limited time, and you need to renew it to continue working offshore. The frequency for renewal depends on the authority controlling the asset you are visiting and your age. 

For UK waters, all assets are controlled by OGUK (formerly UKOOA) and renewals are necessary 2-yearly, with effect from 1 Jan 2007, irrespective of the age of the offshore person. Individual Operators retain the right to request medical assessments more frequently.

A typical examination will begin with you filling out an extensive form on your medical history, and lifestyle e.g. exercises etc. After this there will be a:

Urine check

Height, weight and resultant Body Mass Index (BMI) calculation

Blood pressure

Basic eye sight test

Lung capacity check

Hearing test

A physical examination by a 

The doctor will also discuss the form you filled in, and carry out any additional checks they think necessary e.g. blood sample if required

Excellent blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?

I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go
for a paid option? There are so many options out there
that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Bless

What creatine essentially will assist you with is
putting in the difficult work at the gym. It does this by replenishing the higher energy
compound named creatine phosphate, which the muscle tissues need to have if
they are going to maintain contracting with intensity - and you happen to be going to preserve lifting weight.

I also think that laptop computers have grown to be more and more popular currently, and now tend to be the only form
of computer found in a household. The reason is that at the same time they are becoming more and more economical, their computing power keeps growing to the point where
these are as effective as pc’s out of just a few
years back.

Another bonus: a naturally sweetened shake won't have the aftertaste that comes with artificial sweeteners.
