Although our diving knowledge comes from decades of experience and training, Aquatech Diving & Marine Services Ltd. highly recognizes that diving in contaminated water is extremely hazardous and requires special training.
There is a need to access vital information about the job site and the elements the dive crew will be encountering.
The main questions asked are:
- Will the diver be safe?
- How long can a diver stay in contaminated water before his gear may fail?
- What type of decontamination process will be used?
- How do we ensure both the diver and equipment are thoroughly cleaned so no cross-contamination can occur?
We have spent numerous hours consulting with suppliers and have had countless safety meetings with our highly trained dive crew to ensure they have been supplied with the best equipment to keep everyone safe during and after each job.
Only designated contaminated equipment is used by Aquatech Diving & Marine Services for each dive job when diving in:
- Sewage-contaminated lagoons
- Pulp mill settling ponds
- Gas refineries
We Are Committed to Keeping the Diver Safe.
Contaminated Water Diving Procedures:
- Our dive crew has a minimal six-man team.
- Designated safety zones marked by signage and barriers so no one may enter the area that is not authorized.
- 2- 3 three-zone cleaning areas where the diver will be washed, scrubbed and rinsed along with the gear used.
- After removal, consideration is taken regarding the demobilization process and packing of all the gear, tools and equipment used.
- If necessary, items are subjected to additional decontamination or, worse case, disposed of properly.
