As you may already know, Oil & Gas UK (OGUK) sets a standard of fitness to be reached by anyone working in the industry here. That standard applies to the UK first and foremost but is being increasingly accepted as a worldwide indicator of health and fitness for anyone working in the oil and gas industry. In fact only recently, the Norwegian oil & gas industry (in the North Sea) have started accepting the OGUK certification, meaning there’s no longer any need to double up.
What is the OGUK standard?
The OGUK safety standard lays down certain requirements which must be met, including:
- Photographic ID
- A comprehensive medical, social and occupational history
- Body Mass Index
- Appropriate clinical examination
- Further investigations as required
Safety is the number one priority for the oil & gas industry. And the examination plays a part in that. It gives protection to the individuals receiving certification and – by extension – reduces risk for their fellow offshore team members who often rely on them to carry out their job properly.
