APSTO Advisory: Interpretation of the latest government restrictions regarding the national lockdown
The government has recently published information about the national lockdown.
At present, there are virtually no scenarios whereby a diving instructor can abide by both the HSE Diving at Work 1997 Regulations (DWR) and the current COVID-19 Restrictions.
Therefore, APSTO advise that as a general principle, the training of divers according to HSE DWR cannot take place at this time.
APSTO is reviewing the situation on a constant basis and will provide further advice as the situation evolves.
