DAN Annual Diving Report
Fatalities and serious diving injuries are rare and often seem to be associated with unsafe behaviors or hazardous conditions, but they can occur without apparent cause. Understanding the contributing factors could lead to safer diving. The primary goal of DAN’s Annual Diving Report on Diving Incidents, Injuries and Fatalities is to further this understanding.
The 2017 edition is now available. This special anniversary edition of the report features a look back at DAN’s 30 years of injury surveillance and research achievements, an entire chapter on newly observed types of diving incidents and a look at how both DAN and divers have changed since our first report in 1988. This latest report is packed with the thorough analysis and insights.
