Professional experienced medical care at the point of injury anywhere in the field
Every project aims for zero harm, but accidents do happen. When they do, early access to appropriate management and treatment reduces deterioration, increases survivability and promotes a speedier recovery.
All our clinicians have a complete set of GWO qualifications to allow them to climb any asset in the field. In addition we provide our clinicians with full STCW training.
Pre-written tool-box talks ensure vessel crew and PAX alike are all briefed to support the paramedic in making a prompt response to an incident.
Along with holding GWO qualifications to access turbines, our team have MCA STCW qualifications allowing them to act as deck crew on vessels.
If preferred our Paramedics can sail in a crew seat depending on the vessel’s capacities taking up a crew seat rather than a PAX seat.
To train as an Offshore Medic you must come from a clinical background. Some come from a registered profession like paramedics and some are unregistered.
The title Paramedic is a protected state registered title much like Doctor. Using the title without being qualified and not holding a Health Care Professional Council registration number is illegal. A condition of a clinician’s registration with the HCPC means they have to maintain a auditable portfolio of training and practice to evidence their continual education, to satisfy the HCPC of their competence. The HCPC randomly audit portfolios to ensure compliance. This also provides our clients with reassurance that the staff we deploy to your project are capable when called in to action.
Unlike Offshore medics from an unregistered clinical background the only compulsory requirement is a refresher course every three years, Offshore medics may do more than the minimum, but it’s not expected. Our paramedics are positively encouraged to hold bank contracts with NHS ambulance services as there’s no better way to maintain key skills than using them.
Our team complete a thorough checks of equipment and drugs under their control. Checks and tests are evidenced and logged electronically.
Once kit is charged, checked and operationally ready everything is closed and sealed with coded tamper tags
