Don’t stow it, show it!

Wear your lifejacket to work day banner

Like wearing seatbelts in vehicles, wearing lifejackets in boats is proven to save lives.

And yet we see too much tragedy continuing to occur because, when things go suddenly wrong on the water, people are not wearing their lifejackets.

It can be too late to think about putting on a lifejacket when you find yourself in the water because you’ve fallen overboard or your boat has capsized.

If you can’t reach your lifejacket it can’t save you, and even if you can reach it you’ll struggle to put it on in the water.

With this in mind, Maritime Safety Queensland is promoting 'Wear Your Lifejacket to Work Day' on Friday, 25 October, 2019.

Read more about how you can make a simple contribution towards raising awareness about how lifejackets can save lives.
