HSW Handbook Consultation: Diving Safety Management

Human Resources have been working on a revised version of the Diving Safety Management Chapter of the HSW Handbook.

Document – Draft 6 – Diving Safety – 13 July 2017

It would be appreciated if you could review and provide any feedback/suggested amendments to the HSW Team via email using track changes before COB Monday 21 August 2017.

The key changes to the chapter for noting are –

  • Division of this process into 3 partsĀ (1) Pre Dive; (2) Dive; and (3) Post Dive activities.
  • New definitions included for the Dive Co-ordinator, Dive Officer, Dive Plan, Diver and Restricted diver.
  • Clearer responsibilities for induction.
  • Clearer instruction that diving deeper than 30m and/or decompression is not permitted for University diving activities.

Further information

Should you wish to discuss any of the changes or requirements please do not hesitate to contact your Senior HSW Advisor.
