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