Audits to ensure compliance with the DWR 97 and HSE Commercial Inshore ACOP. MOD largest commercial contractor in UK. Principal contracts within HM Naval Bases (Babcock/BAE/Shearwater). Principal engineering support contracts (UMC) for RN and RFA. Sub Diving contractors (20+ Diving contractors).

Current issues Current Issues DMR Review of Diving Governance. poor overall awareness of the diving scene in the Ministry of Defence Pelley 2002. Overall improvement but still evolving. Key factor in most areas: systemic shortage of SQEP. poor understanding of legislative and regulatory obligations. Inconsistent application of Duty Holding across domains.

JSAT OBSERVATIONS Recognised: The challenge of maximising participation in the activity whilst also complying in full with the DWR which places additional legislative obligations on those involved. (e.g. Tri-Dive Medicals) Impact on BSAC Branches driving people away. Pros: Robust safety culture throughout.

Training very well managed at MILMACS with comprehensive safety management. COMMAC working well. Robust expedition approval process in place. Proactive management within Associations and good communication. JSAT OBSERVATIONS

? Role of Sponsor poorly defined wrt diving obligations. Collective responsibility and accountability no Accountable Person defining the operational envelope. Capability Management not in place to manage risk controls and support Associations and their Branches. Equipment Management no process to demonstrate the safety argument potential for unsafe equipment to be unintentionally introduced. Branches not certified/out of date.

Way Forward? 1* DMR led Working Group. Defining the role of Sponsor. Duty Holding linked to Sponsor? Senior Operator for JSAT Diving? Duty of Care? Should/can JSAT Diving be capability managed? Can any synergy be exploited between AT/military equipment? Certification of Branches - DST surge to complete

as soon as possible. Current Issues Association Branches - At Work? HSE Medicals Try dive. (INM Lead). Decompression comparison/modelling. Dive Computer guidance. Non Freezing Cold Injury (NFCI).
