Safety Snippets

A few members have been asking for clarification on some BSAC recommendations and similar. Others have indicated confusion and suggested that the guidelines seem to change regularly. I thought it might be an idea to offer some quick and easy to read snippets on a regular basis. These might be topical based on some practices occurring in the club or might just be general info. Here is the first:

Depth Limits

Ocean Divers – 20 meters

Sports Divers – 35 meters

Dive Leader and above – 50 meters but there is a strong push towards considering the use of trimix carefully for anything beyond 40 meters

Other agency qualifications – vary so best to ask.
