OGUK (Formerly UKOOA) Offshore Medicals
The UKOOA has now been renamed to the OGUK Offshore Medical. All offshore workers need to pass an Offshore Medical Examination if they wish to work offshore. The OGUK Offshore Medical is valid for two years and allows an employee to work in the UK sector or the North Sea.
Medical Fitness To Work
The test is, in essence, a test of your medical fitness to work in the industry. Our testing procedure meets the requirements as set down.
