unfit for work
I am a 56 years old, offshore worker working as Elect'l and Inst. Technician in oil and gas installation with a symptomatic slow heart rate which will go down to 25BPM. Usually my working environment are mostly in switchgear room with 35KV power supply, welding environment, Unterruptible power supply and oil and gas platform. Two weeks after my PM implantation ( MEDTRONIC, MODEL ENSURA DR MRI SURE SCAN, MRI COMPATIBLE. I undergo for my company required annual medical check up here in PHILIPPINES and due to my PM I requiered a Cardiologist clearance but I was deaclared unfit to work again. For this reason I informed my Company for the status of my medical exam but until now I am still awaiting a response from our Company Doctor for their final decision. At present I am really worried because of what happen to me. At first I was not aware with the Pro's and Con's of having a PM and when my Doctor told me that I required a PM I directly say YES and now I was really worried of the outcome. I appreciate if anybody can provide info how I can assure to my company that I am safe to resume for work again and any possibility that I can work again as Electrical and Instrument Tech in oil and gas facilities?
Thanks in advance for all the comments
