Global Medical Arrangements

Employees working in challenging or extreme conditions such as remote or offshore locations, extreme temperatures or heights, or those employed in physically or mentally strenuous work, often require a medical examination prior to the commencement of their deployment to ensure they are fit for the role.

At Healix, we offer an independent service tailored to our clients’ requirements with a fast turn-around to ensure employees are certified ‘fit to work’ as quickly as possible based on robust medical opinion and with a clear audit trail.

Pre-employment / pre-deployment medical examinations and vaccinations

Our extensive global network of clinics means that medical examinations and vaccinations can be arranged at locations convenient to your global workforce and our proactive approach to case management means that the whole process can be completed without unnecessary delay.  Medicals are tailored to requirements, encompassing factors such as:

  • Demands of the role
  • Location/country of deployment
  • Visa and vaccination requirements
  • Length of assignment
  • Wellbeing of the employee
  • Internal policies and requirements of the hiring organisation.

Working closely with our clients to identify their specific requirements, we also establish a process that best suits your operational needs.

Minimise risk, maximise productivity

When appropriate, we will provide employees with comprehensive medical advice following their examination to reduce any risks they may face. Moreover, we will also provide advice in the event that an employee fails a medical examination.

If someone can’t be fully cleared they may still be able to work in some capacity, if accommodations can be made by their employer. Healix will support both parties to enable the individual to return to work. 

Oil & Gas UK (OGUK) Offshore Medicals

The OGUK Offshore Medical Examination is a recognised standard globally and many hiring organisations require workers operating offshore and in remote locations to undergo this examination once every two years.

Providing access to the complete global network of OGUK accredited specialists, Healix arranges OGUK specific medical examinations on behalf of our clients at locations convenient to their workforce, whether employees or contractors in the Oil & Gas industry.

Our fast turn-around times mean that expensive delays in deployment are avoided.
