This may be a little "nit picky." Surface-supply would seem to be more about extending a dive, than dive-safety, and potentially add entanglement hazards.
Surface supplied is all about dive safety, one has an extended period of time to deal with any emergency, including entangelments.
That explains it. You have a business who employs divers who .... not only lack commercial training, but ANY dive training at all. I expect to see lawsuits rolling in soon.
I think the employer foolish, however I don't know what his insurance policy or what the employment contract says.
As for training, some seem to equate lack of formal training with no training, which is not necessarily the case. In addition, there is no law that requires formal training for any type of diving.
The accident is unfortunate, I wish we had more information to determine what actually happened.
