Differential Pressure Hazards

Differential Pressure Hazards

Commercial divers are aware of the deadly potential of differential pressure hazards, which are locations in the water where high pressure and low pressure meet. A diver can face irresistible suction that pulls him or her into a vessel’s thrusters or propellers, or into underwater structures or machinery such as those associated with pumps and pipelines.

Failures to recognize and avoid differential pressure hazards account for an unfortunate number of serious diving injuries and diving deaths. Amputations and crush injuries occur in some such traumatic events, and the forces involved can make extraction and rescue efforts in entrapment cases impossible.
