If Only...

This documentary is about a tragic and avoidable accident which took place during a diver training course in May 2018. As with many adverse events, there were many contributory and causal factors involved. With hindsight, it is easy to spot them, but in real time, they aren't so obvious. Especially, when they happen relatively frequently without any adverse consequences.

Paradigm Human Performance have partnered with The Human Diver to deliver a number of remote-delivered workshops using the documentary and the events within as the backdrop for the issues facing those in high-risk activities. These include time pressures, peer pressures, lack of psychological safety, incomplete instructions, miscommunications and many more.

If you'd like to schedule a workshop after the 20 May, please get in touch via the form above and select 'Yes' to the workshop question.
