Q&A with DAN Safety Services

Webinar Overview

This webinar will highlight some of the most important safety-related questions posed to DAN during the past two years. Featuring inquiries from divers, dive operators, and dive professionals, these questions and answers will be of interest to all.

With a focus on preventable but recurring accidents, we’ll cover a variety of situations, from what the diver should do to what the diver should expect from the dive operator. Participants are encouraged to come prepared with their own dive safety questions, as the answers may be relevant and helpful to everyone. We hope you’ll join us!
