Connecting offshore workers with experienced doctors

Industry policies require that offshore workers must be regularly assessed by a doctor to make sure they are fit for their working environment.

This page is for offshore workers looking for a registered doctor, and for doctors looking to join our registered list.

Doctors registered with us should:

  • Have knowledge of the offshore environment or similar remote working environments
  • Have knowledge of occupational medicine
  • Have access to appropriate examination facilities
  • Undertake a one-day training programme in offshore medical assessment (attendees should have sufficient understanding of and ability in spoken English to participate in the training without an interpreter)
  • Be able to understand and follow the principles of the risk-based approach embodied in the guidelines.
