International Pre Deployment Medicals

International Pre Deployment Medicals

Many employees engaged in roles involving remote or offshore locations, extreme temperatures, or heights, or physically or mentally strenuous work; require medical examinations prior to the commencement of their employment. 

Healix conducts these medical examinations globally on behalf of our clients, irrespective of the location of the employee or location of assignment/posting.


Requirements for these examinations can vary depending on factors such as:

  • the role
  • the location/country of deployment
  • visa and vaccination requirements
  • the length of assignment
  • the wellbeing of the employee
  • the internal policies and requirements of the hiring organisation.

We work with our clients to identify what they require from their pre-deployment medical examinations and the process that best suits their operational needs.


Oil & Gas UK offshore medicals (OGUK 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.


Healix maintains a network of OGUK accredited specialists globally, and can have OGUK specific medical examinations conducted on behalf of our clients, whether they are employees or contractors for the Oil & Gas industry.
