Offshore Oil and Gas
Remote Medical International is a leading provider of comprehensive support services designed to enhance the health and safety of companies operating in offshore environments.
Our offshore experience ranges from staffing QHSE Advisors and medics on offshore oil installations to equipping full medical clinics on seismic vessels to coordinating pre-employment screenings.
We work closely with you to manage your workforce’s health and safety throughout the duration of each assignment, with a strong focus on building a culture of safety and preventing medical problems through proactive health management. When cases do arise, our sophisticated global medical supply chain management service can deliver the appropriate equipment and our 24/7 topside service can manage cases and coordinate medical evacuations when needed.
Our Approach to Offshore Health and Safety
The maritime industry has demanding work conditions that are often geographically isolated from quality medical care. Flexibility in medical services is required for successful performance. Our services meet the medical needs of the maritime environment through systems designed specifically for short turnarounds with comprehensive care throughout all phases.
Our QHSE Advisors ensure your company’s QHSE Safety Management System (SMS) is adhered to and provide on-the-spot advice. Our advisors typically hold a NEBOSH International Certificate (or equivalent) and a BOSIET certificate and are available to help with risk analysis, incident investigation, auditing, coaching, mentoring, and safety education.
Integrated Medical Support
Managing multiple medical subcontractors is an unneeded complexity in the maritime environment. Our comprehensive services include pre-employment screening programs, medical supplies that meet flag-state requirements, medical staffing, and more. Use one integrated medical service provider to save time and money while boosting performance.
Continuity of Care
We provide seamless care for offshore companies through every stage of a medical event, including detailed medical emergency response planning, audits, and continuous testing. When a patient needs a higher level of care, we take action using our vetted network of ground transportation, air ambulances, and medical facilities specific to your area of operations.
“Our employees work in some of the world’s harshest and most remote environments. We count on Remote Medical International to be there with us every step of the way, to help us prevent incidents from occurring, and if something were to occur, to help us minimize the problem and remedy the situation as quickly as possible.”

Offshore Oil and Gas Project Successes
Global Offshore Oil Drilling
We manage a global master service agreement with a major global offshore drilling contractor. The scope of work provides a full complement of medical services including the delivery of medical staffing, topside support, medical assistance, and workplace health services to a global fleet of offshore drilling installations. We also staff QHSE Advisors to support their SMS.
We have successfully managed this complex project by ensuring the highest level of safety and medical care to our client’s workforce while maintaining compliance with local regulations across all areas of operation.
Seismic Vessels Offshore of Africa
To staff a project off the shore of Africa, a geophysical company requested both medical and safety staffing in response to strict health and safety requirements from the end client. We placed an QHSE Advisor and a physician on each vessel and worked diligently to deploy staff across multiple timelines and locations. We also ensured compliance with local regulations by working with local partners and offering flexible staffing options of both local national and expat personnel.
U.S. Government Vessel Operator
We provide emergency medical advice to each of our client’s government owned and operated ships and units located throughout the world via our topside assistance service. The client’s onboard medical providers can contact our Global Coordination Center 24/7 and get connected to a physician for medical advice within minutes.
We also provide recommendations for those seeking professional medical treatment from other ships or ashore. We take into account what resources are necessary and available, distance from sources of professional medical treatment, and the expense of obtaining such treatment.
Global Shipping Company
We coordinate the pre-employment medical screening process for all of our client’s mariners. We also supply each vessel with medical equipment and a medical inventory management system.
