"Under Pressure is a must read for every diver and every instructor"

Lanny Vogel, CCR, Cave and Technical Diving Instructor, Underwater Tulum.

 

Here's the reality...

Every one of us makes mistakes every day, even the experts.

For that very reason, the aviation, nuclear power and medical professions have invested huge resources in helping their personnel to get better at not making those mistakes, and if they do, how to capture them before it gets really bad. Now it's your chance to learn how they do it. This book demonstrates a new way of thinking and planning to avoid the errors that even the best of us make, errors that can cost lives.

The majority of diver training agencies have a 'fundamentals', 'essentials' or similar class to make sure buoyancy and trim are sorted before progressing to technical or cave diving. But... Most accidents and adverse events in diving are not down to undetected technical failures, poor buoyancy or incorrect trim, but rather a breakdown in communication, poor decision-making or a lack of situational awareness, or more likely a chain of events which are based around these human factors and nobody provides training in this subject in a holistic manner. Under Pressure is about analysing and understanding those essential  human factors.
 

Detailed
Case Studies

The book contains more than 30 detailed stories from globally-known divers such as Jill Heinerth, Richard Lundgren, Steve Bogaerts and Roger Williams. The case studies and analysis show how experts can make mistakes and through the application of experience (won the hard way) they survived to tell the tale.

Topics For
All Divers

No matter if you are a beginner diver, an advanced wreck diver on CCR, a cave diver pushing the line on an exploration dive, or an instructor developing the future generations of divers, this book is for you. The details, skills and knowledge contained within this book are applicable to all divers, irrespective of your experience.

A Book with
One Aim

To improve the safety and performance of divers. Too many divers don't understand how and why incidents happen. Often the incident is judged as 'human error'. If this happens, learning is limited and mistakes WILL happen again. Learn how humans really make decisions, how they should communicate and how we should all lead others.

Gareth Lock, Author

Gareth Lock is a retired military aviator with a passion for improving safety and performance. Certified to advanced trimix level with GUE and to dive a JJ CCR through TDI, he has developed globally unique training programmes to bring the science of human factors to the diving domain to reduce accidents & incidents and improve the enjoyment of all divers. Last year he decided to condense the information he has learned and teaches and put it into this book.

Although he is based in Malmesbury, UK, he travels the world speaking and training divers, healthcare professionals and oil & gas teams. If you'd like to know more about him, his work and his courses, visit https://www.thehumandiver.com
