Safe boating means wearing a lifejacket, an important piece of safety equipment on any vessel.

Accidents happen and if you end up in the water you are much more likely to survive if you are wearing a lifejacket.

Most vessels are required to carry lifejackets for everyone onboard, but a lifejacket only works if you’re wearing it.

There are many types of lifejackets available today that meet the appropriate Australian standards, find the style that works for you and wear it.

When you’re working in an environment that can be as unforgiving as the sea, you should always prepare for the unexpected.
