INFLATABLE LIFEJACKETS

Just as in liferafts, SOLAS requires inflatable lifejackets to be serviced at intervals not exceeding 12 months or, 17 months if the Administration gives an extension. Regular inspections of webbing and cover material for damages, buckle operation, firing mechanism and cylinder tightness checks are very important. SHM’sservice
