Some operators use the DAN tag system - each diver has a tag from a tagboard on the boat that's clipped to their BC before they enter the water and returned to the board when they reboard the boat.
As a rule, I don't dive from cattle boats. I dive from small boats (no more than 8 divers) and I make friends with the crew on the way to the dive site so they know me. It would be very obvious to anyone and everyone if I were not back onboard after a dive.
