Professional surface supplied diving is a team effort. It’s of paramount importance that the topside team, as well as the divers, are all trained and qualified to do their job. The safety and success of a diving operation is only as good as the weakest link on the team. Divers will often make serious mistakes and increase their risks on the job when a tender or communications person is not alert and responding when needed.
The primary differences between Surface Supplied Diving and SCUBA Diving include the following: using voice communication, have unlimited breathing gas supply, use surface support and they are tethered to the surface.
