Industry Specific Medicals

Offshore Medicals (OEUK)

If you’re planning to work offshore, it’s important to note that every worker is required to undergo and pass an OEUK medical examination to determine their medical fitness for working in the offshore environment. As part of this assessment, our competent medical team will review your health questionnaire, which provides extensive information about your medical history and current health status. This process ensures that you’re fully prepared and qualified to work safely in the offshore industry.

An Offshore Medical (OEUK) at Assured consists of the following:

  • Completion of Patient Health History Questionnaire
  • Urinalysis – routine urine test
  • BMI – measurement of height, weight, and calculation of Body Mass Index
  • Near, Distance and Colour Vision
  • Pulse and Blood Pressure Measurement
  • Lung Function Test (Peak Flow)
  • Audiogram (Hearing Test)
  • Consultation with an OEUK doctor

You will be provided with a certificate after the assessment. The certificate will usually last for 2 years.

ENG1 (Seafarers Medical)

Sea Farer Medicals are an essential certification for anyone working at sea. This certification ensures that you are medically fit to perform the duties required of a seafarer. In order to obtain the ENG1 certificate, which is recognized by the Marine and Coastguard Agency (MCA), you must undergo a comprehensive medical examination by a licensed MCA-approved doctor. The doctor will review your medical history, conduct a thorough physical examination, and assess your overall health to determine your fitness for work at sea. With a valid ENG1 certificate, you can be confident in your ability to meet the physical demands of working on a vessel and ensure the safety of yourself and your crew.

Emergency Response Teams Medicals (ERT)

Members of Emergency Response Teams (ERT) require a level of fitness which is assessed by an initial ERT Medical Examination. The initial ERT Medical is similar to the OEUK Offshore Medical with the addition of an ERT Health Review, Spirometry (lung function test) and a Fitness Test (Chester Step). An annual review including Spirometry (lung function test) and a Fitness Test (Chester Step) is required.

Pre-placement Assessment

A robust pre-employment screening process helps mitigate the risks associated with a poor hiring decision by giving companies greater confidence in the quality and integrity of their candidates. This is an extremely cost effective and speedy process to determine the health of prospective employees.

We will evaluate the individual against the job criteria, and our knowledge of the job and advise accordingly.
