Title: A pre-dive check; An evaluation of a safety procedure in recreational diving: Part 1.
Author: Acott, CJ
Abstract: In this study divers were asked to do a pre-dive equipment check on some diving equipment (buoyancy jacket, regulator, air cylinder, contents and depth gauges) that had been assembled so that there were 9 faults to be detected. Only two out of the 55 divers who participated detected all faults. If these divers are representative of recreational divers then an adequate pre-dive equipment check is not being performed by divers.
