Correct Use of Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs

The Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport wishes to highlight a recent report published by the Marine Casualty Investigation Board on the empty vessel found off Tawin Island, Galway Bay on 7th September 2016.

In response to the Marine Casualty Investigation Board recommendation, the purpose of this Marine Notice is to remind fishers and training providers that:

Inflatable personal flotation devices must be worn over all clothing and not underneath. This is to ensure that there is sufficient space for the device to inflate and that the wearer’s breathing is not restricted and allows access to activate a manual Personal Locater Beacon (PLcool smiley.
