Just Culture

X-Ray Magazine article |  
A diver had an oxygen toxicity seizure because an incorrect gas was filled in a cylinder by a dive centre. A baby died because the wrong dose of medication was injected. Who is to blame for the error and how do we try to make sure that these types of incidents aren’t repeated?

Checklists - a tick in the box

Checklists aren’t just about diving equipment, but also about the aim of the div
X-Ray Magazine article |  
At the Rebreather Forum 3 conference held in Florida in May 2012, a number of presentations were made which advocated the use of checklists as a means to prevent diving incidents from occurring, or at least reducing the likelihood of occurrence.

Proving the obvious — How hard can it be?

article |  
It is recognised across a number of industries, including diving, that we need to understand what happened during an accident, incident or near-miss if we are to improve safety. However, more importantly we need understand why they happen. If you don’t solve the ‘why’, then it is like treating the effects of venomous poison but not removing the snake.

Safety Culture - diving in the zone

X-Ray Magazine article |  
“Thank [beep] for that! How lucky were we? We better not do that again. Don’t tell anyone though, we don’t want to look like amateurs...”

What to do with the invasion of the Jellyfish?

article |  
ooming jellyfish populations have become a real nuisance in many parts of the world as masses of the gooey creature are infesting waters, clogging ports and washing up on beaches in the Mediterranean, Japan and Australia. So what to do about it?

Protecting Shipwrecks Proactively

article |  
I was recently chatting online with a colleague from Mexico. We were both lamenting the fact that marine archaeology isn’t a high priority for our respective nations. So, why is that?

Holy Sidemount!

article |  
Judging from the recent spate of PADI ads, we’re in the midst of a new “Tec Revolution”. The last one was reportedly when the training behemoth launched its TecRec program 2000, or so the blog said.

Freediving with Tiger sharks

X-Ray Magazine article |  
Just their name, their size, and their menacing looks can evoke feelings of terror, fear and instinctive rejection. However, if you have the privilege to be able to dive with big tiger sharks, as I have, you might fall in love with them, at least you will bond with them in a mysterious way. They are certainly not as “cute” as marine mammals or anthropomorphized clown fish, but they will have an impact on you that could change your perception of sharks, and marine life, forever.

Eat kelp

X-Ray Magazine article |  
Did you know that kelp is an ingredient in many household foods! Foods like frozen foods, cakes, puddings, salad dressings, shampoos, and toothpastes contain alginate. Alginate is an apparently safe derivative of seaweed (kelp), and is used to maintains the desired texture in many products.
