Sailing Season – Servicing PDFs


With the Sailing Season starting, it is crucial that all sailors and boat owners are aware of the safety gear that they have on board, and can be confident that it will work if it is ever needed.

Marine and Safety Tasmania have released this video explaining the importance of making sure that your inflatable PFD is serviced regularly, according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

PFDs should not only be serviced to satisfy an equipment audit, but should be a regular part of the maintenance and safety checks on every boat.
