    The Director of Diving Safety (Canada) has provided us with a list of hyperbaric chambers that are available for treatment. The list is current as of 2004 and is by no means complete. However, it is a start and may be updated in future postings.

    When is it \"too cold to dive\"? The real answer is that it probably is never too cold to dive! But what about your tender? What about your equipment? Find out what not to do - and why it isn\'t a good idea to lick a K-cylinder at -30C!

    The Canadian Working Divers Institute will be conducting a Diving Supervisors course in Richmond, B.C. between April 18-21st.

    Seneca College graduates dive supervisors in Halifax

    Successful candidates of Seneca College's dive supervisors course in March 2006. Seneca runs these courses periodically throughout the year.

    Twenty-six delegates and observers, representing 16 of the world’s major Commercial Diving Schools, from 13 countries, assembled at the School of the Diver Education, University College of Bergen, Norway from the 12th to the 14th September 2005 for the 23rd Annual meeting of the Association.


    (Nova Scotia) A Digby County company has been found guilty of health and safety violations in the death of a commercial diver. Steven Allan Moore, 40, went diving for sea urchins near Sandy Cove one morning in March 2003. Other divers resurfaced; he didn't. Moore's body was recovered three days later.


    In the classic scenario of divers doing commercial diving work using scuba - without proper procedures being in place - and the diver nearly being killed, Nova Scotia has a lot to consider as it is about to revamp their lax diving standards and regulations. Read what happened ....


    The retrieval of golf balls from golf courses must be carried out with the same attention to detail and care as any other diving operation. Over the last couple of years, divers have been killed in golf ball recovery operations. Don't take the job lightly - find out how divers in Ontario (or elsewhere) should operate when conducting dive operations on the way to the green.


    Professional and sports divers are exposed to multiple dangers which could lead to serious accident: decompression sickness, biochemical accident, barotraumas and extreme environmental conditions.

     

    The need to intervene rapidly to limit the damage cause by an accident brought the Work Health and Safety Commission and the Ministry of Health and Social Services to create a diving medical help line.  L’Hôtel Dieu de Lévis was designated as the centre to ensure this service.  Other services associated with diving medicine will also be provided at this new Quebec Diving Medical Centre.  See what it is all about!


    The necessity for rapid medical intervention in the case of a commercial diving accident has led the Commission for Health and Safety at Work (CSST) and the Ministry of Health and Social Services in Quebec to put in place a medical assistance service which can be provided to a remote site by telecommunications.
