Abstract
A plan to ensure the safety and health of divers looking for subsea energy sources is described. Selection and training, and administrative, technological, and biomedical factors associated with undersea divers are presented. Selection and training problems relate to psychological and medical factors, involved in undersea hyperbaric exposure, while administrative concerns deal with legal and compensatory aspects. Technological considerations concerns deal with audio/vestibular derangements, osteonecrosis, and cognitive and psychomotor performance.
