The Health and Safety Executive is launching a new DVD aimed specifically at diving instructors, providing them with practical advice for teaching recreational diving safely.
The Health and Safety Executive is launching a new DVD aimed specifically at diving instructors, providing them with practical advice for teaching recreational diving safely.

Diving Instructors, Roles, Responsibilities and Risk Assessments has been developed in response to a significant number of serious diving incidents over the past few years, that have occurred during recreational dives or whilst trainees were under instruction.

The DVD shows an instructor going through a competent project planning process and thorough risk assessment ahead of a recreational dive. It also features a mixture of animated re-enactments and a live action reconstruction to illustrate common dive incidents. The film details the steps that could have been put in place, which would have prevented these deaths.

It also features an emotional interview with Suzanne, mother of Julia Brandrith who died in 1999 during a recreational dive. The interview is designed to bring home the reality of the effect on family, when a death occurs as the result of a poorly planned dive.

Frank Murray, HSE diving inspector and project manager for the DVD said, 'Diving instructors have the privilege of introducing trainees to the wonders of the underwater world, but it must be done safely. A duty of care exists for trainees and instructors are responsible for their health and safety at all times. This DVD can help in explaining some of the practical steps that should be taken into account.'
