About the Program | Benefits | Requirements | Downloads
In addition to the level 1 requirements, the provider trains others to deal with emergency situations, emergency exercises are carried out on a planned or regular basis, and there is an increased awareness of safety. The service provider should typically:
|Be able to deal with emergencies (diving, non-diving, neuro-assessment, etc)|
|Train others in emergency management of related injuries and illnesses|
|Continually log and maintain the competency of their staff members|
|Use standardized safety systems (e.g. checklists)|
Apart from the equipment and facilities available for level 1 recognition, the facility should have a training facility available. The facility should also have an active (“current status”) instructor available, who can provide the following DAN (or equivalent) programs:
|Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Emergencies|
|Basic Life Support|
|First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries (if these injuries can be caused in the region the provider operates in)|
|On-Site Neurological Assessment for Divers|
|Automatic External Defibrillators for SCUBA Divers|
As with the previous level, the assessment may be carried out by means of a risk assessment led by DAN or through self-assessment with a final report submitted to DAN for consideration.
Service providers and facilities that are committed to this level of safety and meet the minimum requirements will be recognized by DAN as a “Gold Diving Safety Partner”.
