This plan is not optional but required on all projects that involve the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Coast Guard, and any diving projects within the jurisdiction of a Government authority, supervision or oversight. If your diving contractor does not have & properly maintain these items the government penalties can be extensive to both the contractor and the client. Commercial Diving and Marine Services, underwater welding, diving contractors

​​​Public Notice: The Primary Distinction Between Professional and Recreational Diving  - DEFINITION VS. INTERPRETATION
The professional / commercial diver, (Defined) is part of a diving Contractor team;  having  extensive training in commercial diving and marine services & responsibility (with legal obligations) to each team mate, and to the employer / client. These responsibilities and obligations are formally and clearly defined in state & federal legislation, diving regulations, operations manuals & professional codes of practice. USACE, USCG, USN & Occupational Health and Safety (OSHA) legislation clearly constrains, limits and grants specific privileges on all diving activities whether recreational or commercial (29 CFR 1910 Subpart T). Industry recognized credentials grant us and others like us authority to perform work in exchange for payment.

Recreational divers (Defined) are trained to and allowed to dive for sport (NOT Pay); yet some boldly attempt to interprettheir limited skills as qualifications  equal to or greater than Commercially credentialed Divers. Demand  federally recognized Commercial Diver Credentials (hyper-linked) , Also, they cannot legally obtain Commercial Diving Insurance (in any State); any individual or agency attempting to interpret  Commercial Diving  policy - is running a deadly and Life endangering con game.
Mil-Vet Professional Divers know  the Rules; We live by  them daily. We  know the difference in required professional equipment used and maintain all safety standards, records and requirements  Under State And Federal LAw, - protecting your project and your community from a possible injury or death liability.

The pages that follow will identify our experience through photographic and written reference There are many highly qualified Teams  nationwide our only hope is that if not us then chose one of them to avoid any possible loss of life or endangerment to company assets.  Primary services include but are not limited to; commercial diving and marine services, underwater welding, & we provide trained professional diving contractors in Michigan & Nationwide.
