Description of Incident

Whilst the Diving Support Vessel was conducting subsea diving operations, the bridge team recovered the taught wire pulling the divers from the seabed to 18m above the diver’s maximum excursion depth. This rapid change in depth had the potential to cause pressure induced injuries or injuries with direct contact with the taut wire clump weight. Thankfully, in this instance, both divers reported well post-transfer and following subsequent tests.
