Choosing an ideal commercial diving contractor can be a difficult undertaking at times. Commercial diving is tightly controlled, with regulations spanning numerous jurisdictions, including Canadian legislation, international guideline documents, and manufacturer recommendations.
Simply comprehending what is required for a specific work can necessitate a large amount of specialised knowledge. The primary concern when choosing a commercial diving contractor should be safety. Diving is a high-risk profession that isn’t always forgiving of laziness. A competent contractor should be able to demonstrate a comprehensive risk management system that fits within the legal environment in which it operates. A responsible diving contractor should be able to demonstrate several of the following:
- Diving Operations manual
- Safety Management Plan
- Extensive procedures and work instructions
- Management systems that are accredited
- External awards or endorsements of management systems
- Accreditation to work for global major organisations
- Ongoing internal auditing
- Maintenance of equipment to manufacturers standards by qualified personnel
- Compliance with relevant legislation
- Credible and transparent reporting of incidents
Ability to employ enriched gas, knowledge in specific disciplines of diving, specialist qualifications, in-house resources, quality and openness of reporting, and client testimonials are all factors to consider. Look for a management team with a lot of experience, a lot of inside knowledge, and a holistic approach to employment. It’s crucial to look beyond comparing reported day rates when evaluating a contractor’s suitability for a work. A well-resourced and organised diving crew will outperform a disorganised one in terms of production. Reputable contractors may frequently contemplate risk sharing with clients to hard price or cap costs on jobs, allowing for accurate cost comparisons.
