DAN provides interested applicants with guidance on how to meet the requirements to achieve this level. Depending on the degree of in-house expertise and knowledge concerning dive safety, either a DAN-led risk assessment will be conducted, or a self-assessment may be done by the facility or service provider. A standard reporting document is utilized and a final, completed report is submitted to DAN for consideration.
Service providers and facilities that are committed to this level of safety and meet the minimum requirements will be recognised by DAN as a “Silver Diving Safety Partner”.
