Onboard Dive Operations Safety Management System
Like the ISM code for ships, the ODO-SMS© has been designed to provide high-standard safety and operational procedures to manage scuba-diving activities onboard a ship.
The system is implemented onboard through a training course and a Dive Operations Manual, specific to the vessel.
Our clients are mainly Expedition Vessels, Passenger ships, Superyachts, and high-end Liveaboards. Our goal is to set clear safety standards to mitigate risks and help owners, captains, crew, and divers to be well-informed and coordinated. The ODO-SMS© provides a system for working together successfully. Teamwork and a shared understanding of the crew’s tasks are central to our guidelines and recommendations, encouraging safe working practices and service excellency.
This system contains the necessary tools to enable risk management onboard:
ISO – International Organization for Standardization
The content of three dive-related ISO standards has been successfully integrated in the ODO-SMS©, and thus provides a valuable tool for any vessel to work comfortably towards a certification in this field.
