p.s. yeah, the big one was Lockout-Tagout. I was just in a fire pump draught chamber today at Hess Second reserve welding anodes. When I got to the grating leading into the chamber, I heard a rumble that turned out to be a nearby tugboat operating, but I asked anyway for topside to double-check for anything running or any other pumps near this intake structure. I watched the Hess people lock and tag the fire system pumps before we set up, and we had prints showing no other intakes or discharges in the structure, but I asked anyway because I get freaked out about delta-P.

Yah, Portadam is notorious for scuba work. This is just too sad. There're too many things to go wrong on a working dive to wear a reg that could be yanked out, have hoses everywhere, no comms, no double or triple safety buffers or anything. I wouldn't be caught doing any kind of work like that on scuba EVER. Even on a portable dam. A commercial diver recently died near us at the Highlands bridge project - a result of after-hours scuba work in a swift, dark waterway. It's sad. He was an experienced diver who unfortunately was too complacent.

I hate to see anyone die, but everybody gets a piece of the liability pie this time. In short, knowing there are no comms, the idiot in the pump cntl ctr. had not locked and tagged out the system with 2 locks and 2 keys held by 2 different people, no umbilicals/bails outs, an idiot "tender" with zero exp. - well, wild horses could not have dragged me kicking and screaming into that water no matter what.
