|Why ‘stupid’ technical divers aren’t stupid! They are just human|
|When a diving incident is reported, it is easy to see why an error and mistake was made or a rule was broken. Often we blame the diver for being ‘stupid’, not being aware of the risks or just reckless. But research from other domains under the topic of human factors has shown that this simplistic approach will not improve safety. This mindset-challenging presentation will show you how and why it makes sense for divers to do ’stupid’ things. As you’ll see during the presentation, that includes you! Gareth will also show you what you can do to improve your decisions leading to increased safety, fun and enjoyment on your dives. Curious ? do you want to know more ? Don’t miss this presentation !|
