preliminary dives by senior, experienced members of the team can be of great value in verifying, refining, and analyzing the data to improve the dive plan. This method saves diver effort for recovering items of interest.

6-5.2.3 Identifying Operational Hazards. Information must be collected to help identify hazards. For example, a diver working around a ship shall know the location and status of ship sea suctions and discharge points, propellers, rudders, diving planes, and sonar transducers. If working on or near a vessel that has a nuclear propulsion system, the diver shall be aware of radiological hazards, rules for working on or near such a vessel, and the locations of the reactor compartment, discharges, etc. Most importantly, the diver shall be briefed on potential exposure and shall wear proper underwater radiological exposure detection instruments.
