GVA provides medical services in remote areas for sites and for the support of events

Medical Support for Sites

Remote Medical Services (RMS)

Medical services are provided for oil & gas and large construction projects that are located in remote areas and that are in need of medical expertise and services in the field. It has become an international standard when a significant industrial project is forecasted, to assess the environmental, sanitary and health risks; then to develop a protocol with recommendations of adequate healthcare measures for on-site and for Medical Emergency Response Planning (MERP) for employees, partners and subcontractors. In order to assess the existing hazards and specifics of a given region, our doctors often perform an “on-site survey” which is a type of medical audit of a particular location resulting in a written protocol with recommendations to be considered.

GVA provide with:

  • Set up and operation of modular medical units (mobile clinics) at remote sites
  • 24-hour medical support and guidance for on-site staff
  • Supply of medications, disposables and medical equipment
  • Provision of ancillary services including hygiene monitoring
  • Quality control, operational procedures (including designing of medical evacuation procedures)
  • On-site surveys
  • Environmental and industrial health risk assessment and management (HSE)
  • Medical Emergency Response Plan (MERP)
  • Occupational health
  • Provision of First Aid and Advanced Life Support training courses
  • Recruitment services, outsourcing (providing of highly qualified medical staff matching the specific requirements for working on a remote project and/or at a base camp)

Medical Staffing for Remote Projects and Cruise Liners

Companies in oil & gas, construction, cruise shipping and other industries whose activities involve running a project on-site often consider a requirement for medical staff based on-site (ICU doctors, GP, paramedics, nurses). Such staff should be capable of providing first aid and primary care to the personnel working on the project and to the passengers or the crew on a ship.

These doctors/or nurses can also arrange medical transportation and hospitalization in case of an accident, injury or sudden illness of the staff working on the project.

An on-site mobile clinic may be recommended for projects with a significant number of personnel based in remote locations.

Clinic/First Aid Unit – Design and Management

Companies performing large industrial projects can provide safe conditions for personnel on the work site by using on-site mobile clinics (first aid units) and trained medical personnel. The key factors determining the need of a site clinic are the remoteness of the project from a major city and availability of medical facilities and infrastructure in the area.

The provision of medical units at factories and other industrial projects, even if they are located close to major cities, has also become a standard practice. Such medical units secure provision of first aid emergency response as well as monitoring the compliance of hygiene and sanitary standards at the factory or project.

Professional risks are another factor which should be taken into consideration when designing a particular format for a site clinic.

GVA can design and manage your on-site clinic and provide medical staffing.
Medical Support for the Events

Medical Support for the Events

Event managers, organizers of concerts or sport competitions or any other happening involving the presence of sizable crowd cannot ignore the necessity to provide viable medical care. GVA can assess the needs for both primary and emergency healthcare and find the adequate solution that will give the organizer peace of mind.
