Offshore certificate

Everyone working at an oil platform or rig in the petroleum industry needs to have an approved health certificate. This certification can only be approved by a doctor who specializes in offshore medicine, also known as a petroleum doctor. This doctor will check that you are in good health and are suitable to work on a platform without posing a danger to your own or others' health and safety.

However, there are some differences due to a los unique working conditions. The certificate is also there to check that you are healthy and are not a danger to your own to others' health and safety.
