AOMS has been directly involved in the setting up of industrial site
medical services for a number of years now. This includes various different sites
including offshore oil rigs, the Hibernia Construction Phase, international projects, oil
drilling projects in Africa, etc. Such services could include the presence of physicians,
nurses and EMA's as well as sick bay administrative staff. AOMS can fully design
and equip the individual sick bay to include protocols and procedures tailored to the
industrial setting and its particular location. If any particular site does not require
the services of a physician and nurses only are utilized, AOMS can provide 24 hour
physician telephone consultation and standing orders to assist the site nurse at all times.
This is accomplished through a well established paging system which has been in effect
for an excess of 10 years at this time. If required and if a project is big enough,
AOMS can develop a complete occupational health database so as to observe work
related injury/illness trends as far as the project is concerned on a day to day basis.
This assists greatly with the loss control and safety program. The site RN can provide
routine general practice type care as well as emergency and trauma care.
