RTC advice—use checklists!

After such a long lay-off out of the water, it is not surprising that several agencies are issuing safety statements as Covid-19 pandemic lockdowns are relaxed, and divers around the world get ready to resume diving.

It seemed sensible therefore to take the opportunity for the two organisations to find a common path forward.
