Safety is our top priority! Something we often say, but how do we do it? What are the possibilities in (sports) diving? And what has to be considerd?
Inspection prior to the dive:
Prior to the dive, the environment can be declared safe or unsafe. We do this by inspecting the diver’s surroundings in its entirety and discovering any potential hazards. When risks are discovered, we evaluate them together with the diver. The diver can then assess the risks himself and decide whether or not to make the dive.
If the environment is safe, you can start diving. The points that need to be considered are discussed prior to the dive. This limits any risks.
If the environment is declared unsafe, a drone may even be able to do the diver’s job. The footage can be reviewed and in this way no one can ever be injured.
- Inspecting the surroundings and determining the safety of the site
- Last-minute risk analysis (LMRA)
- Take over the dive in unsafe situations
Straight to the point with an ROV:
Before the dive, the purpose of the dive can also be considered. The quickest way to track down objects is with an underwater drone. The diver can then follow the drone’s images with clear instructions. This eliminates the need to search by touch, so the diver spends less time underwater and less time in potentially dangerous situations.
- Accurately locating objects
- Saving time for divers
- More safety, less costs!
Safety can also be improved during diving. For example, a diver can always be followed at a distance with the sonar while diving. In this way, the operator watches the diver above water. Therefore, dangerous situations can be prevented.
It is also possible to check whether the diver is swimming an optimal route. Less time under water often means less risk. Deviations can be viewed live and at a later time because the images are automatically saved.
In the unlikely event that the diver does run into problems during the work, he or she can always be contacted by the ROV to assess the request for help, which means that assistance can be quickly scaled up.
After the dive, the drone can still play a role. Or rather: the footage that the drone has acquired can play a role. A lot of things can be looked at or evaluated after the end of the dive. This evaluation can be used to check whether safety has really been maintained or what could be improved for next time.
The drone can therefore be used for many purposes and together we are working towards a world where there are no more (preventable) diving accidents! Do you want to know if this is possible for you? Contact us now and we will discuss the possibilities.
