Inland/Nearshore Diving Safety Workshop
8th March 2012, Houston
A lack of awareness by client organizations is frequently resulting in diving contractors winning work by compromising safety.
Inland/nearshore diving carried out inside territorial waters (normally within 12 miles or 19.25 kilometres from shore) continues to result in high levels of fatalities each year. Many of these could be prevented by following simple safety principles.
The workshop is relevant for activities carried out in docks, harbours, canals, culverts, rivers, estuaries, lakes, reservoirs, dams, flooded tunnels, tanks, refineries & terminals and also ship husbandry.
This workshop aims to:
- Raise the understanding amongst end users of key control elements of the OGP Diving Recommended Practice (Report Number 411).
- Achieve a global step change in improving diver safety.
The target audience of the workshop is:
- OGP Members
- Fleet owners and managers
- Classification societies
- Regulatory bodies
- Trade associations
- Insurance underwriters
- Ship agents
