Rules of the Road

As a member of Sheffield Scuba, you must abide by the "Rules of the Road", these along with the Risk Assessments below must be read and acknowledged in writing, annually to the Membership Secretary and Diving Officer. This is to help everyone have a safe and successful dive. The Diving Officer needs to have dive plans from club members planning to go diving:

  • For Ocean and Sports Divers, the DO will need full detailed plans agreed in advance. 

  • Dive Leaders, Advanced Divers, and Instructors, the DO will need a high-level plan of what will be undertaken, as the DO will delegate responsibility and Dive Management to those individuals with high levels of training and experience.

  • The caveat is when divers are going on a diving holiday with guided diving, where plans are not really possible till just before diving – in this case, a general summary of expected diving will suffice in advance of the trip.

UPDATE 30th June 2020: Whilst the COVID-19 situation continues, additional rules and guidance must be followed. Please ensure you follow the extra steps above, applicable to all club members until further notice. This guidance is available HERE.
