Better safe than sorry! This is why we put our whole hearts into creating a safer diving community for the purpose of developing a new culture of diving safety. Get informed and help us spread the word!
We take diving safety very seriously and our actions and research, ever since the start of DAN Europe back in 1983, made it possible to book great results.
From our side we increase diving safety by doing, promoting or providing:
- Diving medical assistance
- Scientific Research
- First Aid Courses
- Safety Campaigns
- Safety Projects
- Safety Resources
As a result, DAN became a synonym for Diving Safety, on a global level
DAN Europe will continue to make diving safety information available, but the right safety attitude has to come from the diver itself. Therefore, the new DAN safety campaigns and projects are focused on the safety attitude divers (recreational and pro's) should adopt to make diving ever safer and avoid accidents from happening.
DAN's HIRA program helps owners, operators, staff and dive professionals identify hazards before they lead to injuries or losses.
The purpose of the RCAPP is to assist and partner with recompression chamber facilities, in areas of equipment, training and emergency assistance, to assess and improve their ability to treat injured divers.
Be prepared and well informed before you go diving
I suffer from a low blood pressure. Is it safe for me to start diving?
The information included in this section reflects the prevention campaigns developed by DAN Europe over the past three years, which have proved to be crucial in assisting the diving community, shaken by doubts and questions about the risks posed by Covid-19, in a timely and scientifically rigorous manner. Currently, the situation seems to be back under control and it is hoped that the WHO will soon declare an end to the Pandemic. For questions regarding suitability for diving we refer to the most recent version of the Medical Statement. As a reminder, DAN Members can also contact our Medical Division for personalised consultations.
