Remote Offshore Medics

Safeguarding your workforce in remote locations

We have a dedicated remote medical team who provide and support offshore medics to safeguard the health and wellbeing of employee’s working both onshore and offshore. Our remote medical services provide a wide range of services.

Our team of medics are able to work independently of definitive care facilities, have a thorough understanding of their limitations and resources, are aware of the hazards of remote environments and are adaptable and flexible to an ever changing and challenging work environment. 

All our offshore medics are recruited through a rigorous selection process. In addition to meticulous curriculum vitae screening and credentials checks, we conduct a challenging initial clinical interview with all potential candidates, ensuring only the highest calibre candidates are selected. 

As a minimum, our team of offshore medics undergo an annual medical competency assessment, conducted by a member of our clinical team with extensive knowledge and experience of the offshore medic role, medic training and the offshore environment. Our Offshore Medics working in the North Sea will obtain a HSE approved training course.

What is Offshore Medic?

Offshore medics work on fixed or mobile oil assets and support vessels, primarily looking after the crew’s health, safety, and welfare. Having an offshore medic on these vessels is a legal requirement

They also have other duties, such as health administration or health and safety at work.

Besides having thorough medical knowledge, offshore medics understand the limitations of resources, are aware of the hazards of their remote environments, and can adapt to them and their ever-changing and challenging environment.

At MCL Medics, our remote medical team provides and supports offshore medics to safeguard the health and well-being of the employees working onshore and offshore.

Having a quality remote offshore medic service provider such as ourselves ensures you can take the best care of your employees and maintain a full support team of workers to work the asset and maximise output.

Benefits of an Offshore Medic

In an offshore setting, employees face unique and usually hazardous conditions because of the harsh weather and limited medical facilities. We know first-hand the benefits of having qualified offshore medics in such instances. These benefits include:

Improved safety

Offshore workers face a range of hazards and risks. Having a trained medical professional on board helps improve safety and reduce the risk of injuries and accidents.

Rapid response to medical emergencies

In the event of a medical emergency, having an offshore medic ensures employees receive life-saving medical care. Besides providing medical care, offshore medics understand the shortcomings of the work environment and are trained to provide the best medical care even in challenging circumstances.

Enhanced medical care

Offshore medics are equipped to provide a range of medical services. They can offer first aid, emergency medical care, disease prevention, and control on the asset and other offshore work locations.

Duty of care

The duty of care on an oil asset extends to ensuring the safety and well-being of all personnel working in a challenging offshore environment. As part of this commitment, providing an offshore medic on the vessel is paramount. This proactive approach not only safeguards the health of the workforce but also aligns with industry standards and regulations for maintaining a secure and prepared working environment on the oil asset.

Compliance with industry standards

By law, many offshore installations must have a dedicated medical professional on board. Having an offshore medic on board can help to ensure compliance with these standards.

With MCL Medics, your organisation can access the best offshore medics on call for your employees anytime. With our industry experience and rigorous training, we can cater to a vast range of needs, including offshore workplace assessments and placement of offshore medics.
