If you own or work at a dive center, the Divers Alert Network has published a new safety tips guide.
The new guide is meant to help dive professionals and business owners manage the hazards associated with dive operations.
The new digital guide covers various aspects of dive businesses — including training pools, retail areas, fill stations, and dive boats — and presents practical strategies for mitigating risk in all of them.
According to DAN President and CEO Bill Ziefle:
“DAN has a long history of working with dive operators to promote safety. Dive professionals are the lifeblood of this industry, and they’re the ones who instill safety consciousness in new divers. We’ve created this guide not only for their students’ and divers’ well-being, but also for their own. The tips and strategies outlined in Safety Tips for Dive Operators represent the most significant steps dive operators can take to promote safety and limit their liability.”
