Diving Safety

The Diving Safety Program was established as a result of Indiana University’s longstanding history of SCUBA diving training –beginning in 1963 –and the continuous demands for research in underwater environments. The Diving Safety Program provides oversight of training, recreational, and scientific SCUBA diving and free snorkeling activities.

The program further supports university students, faculty, and staff through the training of underwater techniques and associated technologies ensuring compliance with IU scientific diving regulations as well as Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) breathing compressed gas standards.
