Anyone travelling offshore by helicopter must now have a shoulder measurement to determine the safest part of the aircraft for them
to sit in the event of an emergency at sea. If shoulder width is 55.9 cm or more they are deemed XBR (extra-broad), whilst the rest are
classified as regular. If the measurement is >54.8 cm regular re-measurements will need to occur every 4 years.
Wessex medicals has 2 qualified assessors, who can come to your workplace if you have a large number of employees needing measurement, or see them individually in Bath. On completion of the medical the operative will receive a certificate stating their category. This can be done alone or as part of the OGUK medical or FTT assessment.
