Useless Unless Worn: Lifejackets

Thursday 21st December 2017

RNLI Lifejackets

The RNLI have released a dramatic new video that provides a stark reminder for all crew members on the need to wear a lifejacket when there is a risk of falling into the water. Using a group of fishermen, they demonstrate the debilitating effects of cold water on persons entering the water without a lifejacket – and show how much better the same group fares when wearing a lifejacket.

A shorter 60-second version is available on the RNLI Facebook page. Any company wishing to use this video for crew awareness training can contact the Secretary for details.
