PROVIDING MEDICAL SERVICES IN CHALLENGING OFFSHORE ENVIRONMENTS
Given the remote nature of offshore wind farms, the working environment and often harsh weather conditions, the potential for medical emergencies is a genuine risk.
Wind Turbine technicians work at heights, in confined spaces, and around heavy machinery, for extended periods of time. All these factors can contribute to a variety of health and safety issues. Incidents can range from mere inconveniences to life-threatening situations making swift medical intervention and access to reliable medical facilities critical to save life or limb.
With over 35 years’ experience delivering remote medical services, we have a deep understanding of the health and safety challenges faced by the offshore wind industry. Our medical and operations teams are well-versed in the regulations, guidelines, and best practices governing offshore wind operations, enabling us to provide tailored medical services that address your unique needs.
Our medical services are designed to mitigate these risks and keep your workers safe and healthy. We also work closely with our clients to develop customised health and safety programmes that meet their specific needs.
