2017 EDITION - A Report on 2015 Diving Fatalities, Injuries and Incidents.
In 2017, we are celebrating 30 years of the DAN Annual Diving Report. The first issue, published in 1988, was titled the DAN Report on 1987 Diving Accidents. A formal data-collection process had started a few years earlier. The purpose of collecting data was to estimate the burden of injuries within the dive community, to learn more about the causes of injuries and to inform the develop- ment of preventive interventions.
