Paradoxically, diving is a potentially dangerous sport with a good safety record. This is in part due to the rigorous training we receive as divers, and also because of the safety-conscious way in which we go diving. With this in mind all divers must abide by the following rules:
- All divers should read and understand BSAC’s guide to “Safe Diving” (BSAC Safe Diving) and read it once a year, as things change every now and then. If you do not understand any part of this guide you should ask the Diving Officer for clarification.
- All divers should inform the Diving Officer of any planned diving at the earliest opportunity. After diving, they should submit brief records to the Diving Officer. Note that BSAC no longer distinguishes between “club” and “non-club” dives. (BSAC Dive definitions).
