dc.description.abstract The nature of United Kingdom diving is reviewed with descriptions of parameters such as dive site types, depths, water temperatures, underwater visibility, weather conditions and currents. Branch-based diving organisations are described with emphasis on the British Sub-Aqua Club. UK diver training systems rely heavily on the buddy system where skills and capability building of a buddy team emphasize buddy rescue skills, leadership skills and navigation. Dive management roles for different BSAC diver grades are summarized. Supervision, equipment, branch structure and decompression management, commercial training and the pace at which it takes place are all important attributes of UK diver training. The purpose, scope and data collection method of the BSAC Incident Report precedes the diver fatality analysis discussion of 140 of the 197 incidents between 1998 and 2009. en_US
