Diving operations can be made up of either a number of dives or even a single dive. A diving operation is the portion of a diving project identified in the diving project plan which can be supervised safely by one person. It will normally be evident what this portion of work is, but factors such as the task, site conditions and the diving techniques to be used, all contribute to making the decision. For example, a 28-day diving project may be made up of 40 diving operations.
