"I have been a dive professional for over 30 years. Diving is safe, but let's face it, accidents do happen sometimes and, when they do, I am glad DAN Asia-Pacific is there. I'm a DAN AP Member.You should be too." - Col McKenzie, Director of SE Asian Operations, SSI Australasia

Accident Reporting & Research

As part of its mission to improve dive safety DAN collects and reports on diving incidents, injuries and fatalities.

In addition, DAN is the industry leader in diving physiology research and is one of the major organisations in the world that conducts significant medical research on recreational scuba diving safety.

DAN's studies are revealing important information that will benefit the entire diving community and improve recreational diving safety worldwide. Without DAN, many important questions about recreational diving safety would not only remain unchallenged, but unanswered.

Our research projects to date have included the effects of flying after diving, ageing and its effect on dive health, as well as diving with diabetes.
