Best practices, reducing risks, looking to the future

Diving is a hazardous activity – whether undertaken for work or leisure. Divers are totally reliant on life support equipment and on a dedicated support team on the surface. Underwater work can introduce significant hazards and many activities which can be carried out without problems on the surface can be very dangerous underwater – e.g. using powered tools or mechanical lifting. The risks associated with diving are generally well known and can be controlled effectively by appropriate training, planning, equipment and procedures.
