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.

Life jacket with words: wear it
Lifejackets only work if you wear one

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.

Wear your Lifejacket to Work Day

Friday October 2 is Wear your Lifejacket to Work Day so wear your life jacket and show your colleagues that if it’s easy enough to wear at work, it’s easy enough to wear on the water.
