Introduction to Commercial Diving

Introduction to diving is a document created  to assist safety management personnel in their decision making process. The aim of the document is to give an overview of what we do and how we do it.  

Being  clear with our clients about what occurs underwater, the methods and techniques in place as well as what equipment we use gives us good communication. Using this communication  we can generate a synergistic environment where the quality, safety and environmental interests  of our clients can be preserved.
