Auditing and assurance play a crucial part of ensuring the safety and integrity of any diving operation, with the emphasis on diver safety. Therefore, it is essential that diving contractors are audited technically and operationally by a competent auditor, periodically or prior to the commencement of a diving project.
Namaka Subsea, has developed a three-day auditing and assurance awareness course. The course is designed to provide awareness of the competence requirements and process of completing diving contractor technical and operational audits.
The course is made up of fourteen-modules and includes a multi choice exam which will be completed at the end of the three days. All modules are discussed in depth and contain essential information required not only to understand how an audit should be carried out but also how to manage an audit through to completion and is aimed at all diving personnel involved with diving operations.
Sandy Harper (Namaka Subsea, Director) said “It is imperative that all personnel involved with diving operations understand the auditing process and their responsibility throughout. Furthermore, with new initiatives such as the IMCA eDESIGN auditor’s competence scheme being implemented, it is essential that auditors are given the correct training to ensure their inclusion within the scheme”.
The introduction of new laws throughout the world regarding corporate man slaughter, which would hold the End Client [operator] accountable as well as the Diving Contractor, has led to diving contractor audits evolving. The past few years have seen a substantial change in diving contactor auditing and assurance within the industry, due to more in-depth audits and a requirement for higher competencies of diving operations auditors.
In an effort to assist the industry achieve safer working practices and operations, NAMAKA SUBSEA plays an active role, by ensuring a position within the relevant workgroups, such as the International Diving Industry Forum (IDIF) and committees such as IMCA Safety, Medical, Technical & Training (SMTT) committee. Involvement in these workgroups has seen the development of auditing processes on behalf of IOGP and IMCA.
