DAN Launches Its Legal Network

Divers and Diving Professionals in particular may find themselves in need of legal advice and support from time to time. In response to this need, and following proposals by several DAN members who are also members of the legal profession, DAN has established an amazing worldwide network of legal experts and lawyers who are both experienced and knowledgeable in diving practices (being divers themselves) and diving law. Previously, DAN has only offered medical advice to its members but has recently decided to consider extending the services it offers to its members by introducing a network of legal professionals to advise members on legal matters when needed.

The DAN-SA Podcasts

DAN's educational Podcasts provide unique insights into prevention and management of diving accidents. The DAN Podcasts provide divers with a unique platform to learn about common dive problems associated with ears, headaches, equalisation techniques and even controversial topics such as malaria. We know that divers love to travel and most of us enjoy the comfort of our smartphones or tables. Therefore the DAN Podcasts are idea for divers on the move! You can listen to professional diving physicians share their insights into dive and safety topics where ever you are.
