DAN has undertaken the important mission of promoting and supporting a culture of safety amongst divers and participating diving service providers.
The Program's vision is to create, promote and build a culture of safety at all SCUBA diving schools, charters and operations around the world.
The DSP Program is made of 3 levels, with an associated Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (HIRA) component.
This Program is designed for professionals in the recreational dive industry, like yourself, who work hard to be safe and responsible dive operators.
From the very beginning, the Divers Alert Network has included within its mission “to work to prevent dive injuries and to promote diving safety.”
However, DAN cannot achieve this objective single-handedly – it requires a “partnership” with the professionals in the field.
The DAN DSP Program and its associated component, the Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (HIRA) recognise ideal behaviour and activity, and encourage all dive operations to become properly prepared to prevent and manage dive emergencies. This is done by making sure the operations meet already-established safety guidelines (such as the Emergency Assistance Plan).
If you want to contribute to make this sport even safer, we warmly invite you to join the Program!
