Accidents & Safety Reports

Diving accidents and diving safety reports

Occupational diving is recognised as a high risk activity, but thankfully is in practice a very safe undertaking with a very low injury and/or fatality rate. This is due to the high standard of training and assessment of occupational divers and the relatively strict regulation of the industry. Accidents involving divers do happen, though, and we can all learn lessons from these unfortunate events.
