41 - C2 CHECK LIST

Specifies requirements for personnel, equipment and operational procedures associated with the conduct of recreational diving, recreational diver training and recreational snorkelling at a workplace. Includes the use of air, other nitrogen/oxygen mixtures and mixed gases as breathing media, the use of rebreather units and the conduct of decompression diving.

This Standard specifies requirements and offers practical guidance for the personnel, equipment and procedures for recreational diving operations using air or mixed gases as the compressed breathing gas supplied through self-contained underwater breathing apparatus (SCUBA), for recreational diving operations using rebreathers and for recreational snorkelling where these activities occur in a workplace. This Standard does not apply to (a) any recreational diving using compressed air, recreational snorkelling or recreational mixed gas diving performed by persons who are not at a workplace; and (b) diving operations (including with surface-supplied breathing apparatus (SSBA)) at a workplace where the diving operations are not for the purpose of the training or supervision of recreational divers and snorkellers, for which other Standards may apply.
