    I can be a commercial builder. welder, electrician or whatever. If I am self employed I have the option of being covered and regulated by OSHA (WISHA in Washington)

    It is iffy, depends on who they were working for/what they were working under (private/public/govt.). I consider any seafood harvester to be a professional diver and reserve the commercial title for the people who build/maintain/repair - generally the people who wear dive helmets opposed to masks or SCUBA rigs. Right or wrong, that is my mental process for distinguishing between the two. Likely jurisdiction under federal or state regulations if not a training or scientific diving service. Sub-part T still applies if the op doesn't fall under the specified exceptions.
