Please read the following information carefully.
The medical examination will always include the following:
- Photographic ID of the examinee
- A comprehensive medical, social and occupational history

- Body Mass Index (BMI)
- Appropriate clinical examination
- Further investigations (e.g. blood tests, electrocardiograph (ECG), spirometry) may be required to clarify findings but are not a routine requirement
Every person must be examined prior to employment offshore and thereafter at 2-yearly intervals.
Following sickness absence due to significant injury or illness, or following evacuation from an offshore installation for medical or dental reasons, an individual's medical or dental fitness must be assessed and he/she should not return offshore until certified as medically fit to return to work offshore by an Oil & Gas UK approved physician. This assessment may, but need not automatically, involve further medical examination.
Payment by card preferred (cash and cheques accepted).
No VAT surcharge.
Invoice can be sent to companies (please supply purchase order).
Emergency Response Teams - Certificate of Fitness to Participate in ERT Duties
Oil & Gas UK recommends that ERT members tasked with physically strenuous activities undergo regular Medical Examination and Aerobic Capacity Assessment.
The Chester Step Test is an acceptable and reasonably reproducible method. It has been determined that a VO2 max of 35mls/Kg/min is the minimum that would indicate that individuals will have a physical capability adequate for normal ERT duties (applicable to installations and locations with fixed firefighting apparatus).
Aerobic capacity assessment should be undertaken annually.
Book in combination with UKOG medical.
