Why a medical examination?
Without a valid medical certificate, it is not allowed to work in the offshore sector, as a sailor or in the wind sector.
Depending on where you work, it may take longer for emergency services to be on site and can, if necessary, take you to earth. Therefore good health is a prerequisite, not only for yourself but also for your colleagues. If your medical certificate expires right after you are about to land again, please book a medical exam before going to work! In the event of force majeure, it may happen that you are away from home for a longer period of time and therefore not validly examined.
Since April 2015, it is also required to be in possession of a shoulder measurement certificate if you are traveling by helicopter (from England).
Regular tests take about half an hour. If an additional examination is required, the test may take longer.
