Title Risk analysis for alternative manning of hybrid bells
Bibliographic information Health and Safety Executive, Library Information Services, Broad Lane, Sheffield S3 7HQ, United Kingdom, Nov. 1990. 188p. Illus. 15 ref.
Abstract A detailed analysis was carried out of the risk associated with the operation of the hybrid diving bell. It was concluded that operating the hybrid bell with 2 divers and a standby diver at the surface is likely to result in a lower loss of life when compared to using 2 divers with a standby in the bell and another standby diver at the surface. It was also found that for the 3-man operating mode, the third man incurs a significant personal risk. Analysis of the standby diver data revealed that he provides a valuable contribution to the life saving capabilities of the diving team.
