The Oil and Gas industry introduced in 2018 a medical assessment for the fitness for in‐water EBS training, otherwise known as a Fit to Train Medical. The Fit to Train Medical ensures that an individual risk assessment is carried out and identifies any medical conditions that may put one at risk of barotrauma.

The OPITO BOSIET, FOET and HUET Courses will now include in-water training with the CA-EBS.
This new element requires additional medical tests for delegates, which will be captured via a "Fit to Train" certificate. This must be completed before you can partake in the BOSIET, FOET or HUET Courses.

Delegates will need to complete a questionnaire asking about respiratory, ear, nose and throat checks and a lung health assessment which will be assessed in a face to face medical assessment with an Oil & Gas UK Examining Doctor.

This medical is usually undertaken at the same time with an OGUK Medical but may also be carried out on its own.

Procedure:
You should allow 15 minutes for the medical.

The Chester step test is a way of gauging fitness by measuring the heart’s ability to recover from exertion.
It is often a pre-requisite for working in roles requiring a basic level of physical fitness.

Procedure:
You should allow 15 minutes for the appointment.
The Chester step test is a sub-maximal test which requires you to step onto, and off a 30cm/12″ step (a standard gym bench), at a rate set by a metronome disc, sufficient to elicit a heart rate of around 80% max heart rate at a moderate level of exertion.
It is a multi-staged test so every 2 minutes there is an increase in the rate of the step. Exercise heart rates are then plotted and an aerobic capacity and fitness rating may be calculated.

Please bring with you:
Photographic ID (Your passport or driving licence)
Comfortable footwear and clothing
