Cognitas diving incident talks
Gareth Lock will put forward compelling changes to improve safety
The well-known GUE technical diver runs Cognitas Incident Management, studying risk factors for sport divers.
After serving as a C-130 Hercules navigator in the RAF, Gareth moved to Boscombe Down to study aerospace accidents.After 10 years service he went on to set up Cognitas in order to apply the same principles of airborne incident analysis to those underwater.
Mr Lock is now giving a series of presentations to explain his approaches in more detail. After outlining his theories of accident analysis, he then moves on to apply it to real world cases.
The talks are aimed at recreational divers, OC technical divers and CCR divers, with example cases adjusted accordingly.
Each presentation will be free, and lasts around 50 minutes.
Gareth will present ‘Human Factors in Diving Incidents’ at the London School of Diving on October 17th, and at Eastbourne Sub-Aqua Club on the 18th.
