How to correctly wear your lifejacket
30 April 2021

As part of our continued commitment to keeping users #LifejacketSafe, the Crewsaver team has released a new lifejacket donning instructional video, ‘how to correctly wear your lifejacket’.  The new video demonstrates to users how to correctly wear your lifejacket, including "must-dos" to ensure lifejacket effectiveness.

If you do accidentally find yourself in the water, a correctly fitted lifejacket will help to:

  • Float you high in the water
  • Keep your airways clear
  • Support your head properly

Guy Page, Training and Technical Support Manager, says, 'it is vital that you correctly don and adjust your lifejacket before every use. This will ensure that you receive the maximum turning and freeboard performance for the lifejacket in the water. Wearing a loose lifejacket could result in the lifejacket underperforming or even falling off the user.
