Offshore worker shoulder measurements at OH3

Earlier in 2015, it became compulsory for offshore workers to have their shoulders measured professionally. This is to check if they are extra-broad and require to be seated next to a larger helipcopter window to aid escape. OH3 now has two trained OH professionals licensed through Step Change in Safety to conduct these measurements, which can be done individually or as part of an Oil and Gas UK offshore assessment.

Sean Murray – Winner of RHS/BBC Chelsea garden competition

We are proud (not that we can take any credit as I know zilch about planting!) and delighted to announce that Sean Murray, one of OH3s fantastic OH nurse advisors has won this competition, shown Monday to Thursday last week 11th-14th May 2015.
By winning he was honoured to create a garden for Chelsea flower show and was featured last night on BBCs preview for the show. It looked amazing and all OH3 staff are so happy for Sean. He has always been enthusiastic about gardening and his passion and knowledge just shine through when he is talking about it.
He is a great ambassador for having a passion and interests outside of work and keeping the work-life balance as good as can be. And the benefits of gardening as a therapy are obvious to destress and take pride in watching things grow.
Amazing achievement Sean. Thanks for such an inspirational effort. Well done!
Dr Mike OReilly, Director.

Revision of DVLA visual requirements for Group 2 drivers

In March 2013, the visual acuity requirements for LGV and PCV drivers has changed. Previously the acuity required was 6/12 in the worse eye and 6/9 in the better eye, which has now been changed to 6/7.5 in the good eye. This may affect any companies with employees who require a group 2 licence to do their job and their vision will be checked against the new standard at their next assessment which is usually at first licence application, then at age 45 years and five-yearly thereafter. It may also affect some commercial drivers, people who need to drive their cars or light vans as part of their day to day work. Many of these only need a group 1 or car licence but may need to satisfy group 2 medical rules for their job. Please enquire about medical assessments for your employees who need to drive for work.
