Divers’ safety


Making the workplace safe includes providing instructions, procedures, training, and supervision to encourage people to work safely and responsibly. Even if the safe systems of work have been applied, some hazards might remain and personal protective equipment is needed for reducing the risk.

 

Working underwater comes with many hazards, as divers face several specific physical and health risks when they work with scuba and diving equipment or use high pressure breathing gas.

 

The safety of our employees and contractors is of the utmost importance for our company. As such, BST has purchased top-of-the-line wet and dry diving suits to help ensure the safety of our divers.

          

The wetsuits are simple, expanded neoprene suits, used in the summer when the water temperature is between 10 and 25 °C. Wetsuits provide thermal protection for divers and operate on the principle that the body is the best source of heat. To help contain this heat underwater, these suits are made with a closed-cell foam material, which is filled with thousands of tiny gas bubbles trapped within the structure.

 

Dry suits are typically used in winter when the water temperature is between −2 and 15 °C. A dry suit keeps the diver completely dry as it is fully sealed and uses a combination of wrist seals, a neck seal, and a waterproof zipper, ensuring that no water enters the suit.  

 

The use of proper uniforms minimizes the risks posed to a diver’s health and safety and protects the diver against any physical harm or hazards that the underwater environment may present.

 

Black Sea Terminal has always been concerned about the safety of its employees. Safe working conditions not only increases productivity and the company’s overall success, but is integral to safeguarding the welfare of its employees.
