HSE Remote Medics

Our Offshore & Remote Medics work on a variety of different projects within varied industries and they are based on-site to look after the health, safety, environmental and medical welfare of the workforce.  They often have additional duties related to administration or health and safety at work and form part of the Emergency Response Team.


We ensure that we have a detailed understanding of our clients’ needs in relation to our HSE Medics and tailor the medic profile, selection, working pattern, working practices and training plan to meet these needs.  We regularly assess our medics’ competence, which includes an annual full assessment and we ensure that their programme of professional development targets any concerns identified during this review, especially in the areas of, for example, advanced life support, pre-hospital care, thrombolysis, occupational health, hygiene, health and safety and emergency training.


The majority of our medical staff have  completed their HSE Offshore Medic course as a minimum requirement and have relevant Health, Safety and Environmental Qualifications as well.


We ensure that the professional development targets of our HSE Medics training are identified and met.  This ensures that our HSE Medics are able to provide a higher level of clinical intervention for primary care and emergency care in the difficult and testing environments.
