The introduction of new laws throughout the world regarding corporate manslaughter, 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 contractor 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 to 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.
