Before you jump in or head out on a dive trip, make sure you have all the kit you need to stay safe, help your buddies and mainly, enjoy your dive.
Plus by being prepared yourself you might be able to help a buddy in need (not every diver will bring every item). You can print them out and tick each item off as you pack for your next diving trip.
BSAC Incident Reports
The Annual Diving Incident Report contains details of UK diving incidents occurring to divers from all agencies and backgrounds, plus incidents occurring worldwide involving BSAC members. The report analyses the background to the incidents and over many years BSAC and other UK based training agencies have constantly revised and updated their training programmes and safety guidance based on the report.
Agencies and organisations take into account both developing technology and they address training issues highlighted by incident analysis. BSAC monitor and report on Diving Incidents in the interest of promoting diving safety.
The collection of incident information is central to understanding trends in diving safety.
