The UK Oil and Gas Industry – an introduction for Oil & Gas UK registered doctors
All doctors applying to join the Oil & Gas UK examining doctors list are now required to undertake this preparatory training course, to ensure that examining doctors have sufficient knowledge of the UK offshore oil and gas industry to enable them to undertake Oil & Gas UK medical examinations.
The course provides an opportunity for newly registering examining doctors to obtain an overview of the UK oil and gas industry. They will hear about what life and work is really like offshore, to enable them to get a better understanding of the working environment their patients face.
Dr Graham Furnace, Oil & Gas UK’s medical advisor, provides a practical and interactive session on the principles of the medical guidelines and on dealing with some of the more common problem conditions.
During the course, delegates will also be able to part-take in a ‘taster’ underwater helicopter escape exercise so they can experience some of the stresses workers could potentially face working offshore.
The course allows doctors from across the world to meet and discuss issues relating to health matters within the oil and gas industry.
The cost includes the training course, the applicant’s first year subscription for inclusion on the examining doctor list, and a copy of the guidelines in both booklet and CD format.
