HSW Handbook Approval: Diving Safety

The revised HSW Handbook Chapter “Diving Safety Management” has now been approved and posted on the HSW Website.

This version of the process seeks to achieve the following outcomes:

  • To simplify and clarify requirements by dividing the chapter into 3 parts (1) Pre Dive; (2) Dive; and (3) Post Dive activities.
  • To provide clearer responsibilities for induction.
  • To define and clarify specific roles for the Dive Co-ordinator, Dive Officer, Diver and Restricted diver.
  • To align the minimum training, qualification and competency requirements with the WHS Regulations 2012 (SA) and AS/NZS 2299.2:2002.
  • To provide clearer instruction that diving deeper than 30m and/or decompression is not permitted for University diving activities.
