Diving and boating safety services for UC Berkeley researchers are provided by the UC Enterprise Dive & Boat Safety Program, hosted at UC Santa Barbara.
The UC Enterprise Dive and Boat Safety Program supports the Dive and Boat Safety Programs throughout the UC system as well as provides the oversight and support for all scientific diving and boating operations by UC Berkeley, UC Irvine, UC Merced, UC Riverside, and at the UC Gump Field Station on Moorea, French Polynesia. (This program was formally known as the UC Dive & Boat Safety Consortium.)
The UC Enterprise Dive and Boat Safety Program Consists of Three Core Functions:
- Oversee UCB/UCI/UCM/UCR Dive and Boat Safety Programs
- Oversee UC's Gump Station Waterfront Operations: Diving and Boating
- Support UC Systemwide Dive & Boat Safety Programs
The UCSB Dive and Boat Safety Program manages and helps support the UC Enterprise Dive and Boat Safety Program, however any UCB, UCI, UCM, UCR or Gump Station diving and boating activities operate specifically under the UC Enterprise Dive and Boat Safety Manual and Control Board.
