Oil & Gas UK (OGUK) Offshore Medical
Every offshore worker must undergo and pass an Oil & Gas UK (OGUK) Offshore Medical examination.
For UK waters and the North Sea, physicians who are approved by the United Kingdom Offshore Operators Association (UKOOA) Health Advisory
Committee should carry out the examination and issue certificates.
The offshore medical certificate, as it is commonly known, is controlled by UKOOA and renewals are necessary every 2 years irrespective of the age of the offshore worker.
Individual operators retain the right to request medical assessments more frequently.
