Operational Risk Management book

Dive managers can now benefit from a new book dedicated to the practical application of risk management to diving of all kinds and at all levels.

‘Scuba Diving Operational Risk Management’ is the latest book from specialist dive book publisher, Dived Up Publications, and is written by a former Australian SAS Assault Swimmer Class 1 Gino Ferreri.

In seeking to maintain diver safety, inform rescue management procedures and learn from near misses a process for identifying and dealing with risks is vital. In this key text the author details the step-by-step procedure for pinpointing the real causes of dangers, and mitigating against them and their effects.

  • Dive smarter – reduce uncertainty.
  • Includes a diving ‘Risk Management Toolkit’ of ready-reckoners, templates and downloads.
  • Looks at diving risk management the SAS way.
  • Contains information that aligns with the ISO 31000 international risk management standard.

Dived Up say this will be of great benefit to recreational, advanced, and professional divers, plus anyone directly or indirectly associated with diving:

“All will find practical value in the principles and techniques contained in the book, which will remain relevant throughout their personal development and any future advances in equipment and approaches.”
