- Purchase a lifejacket suitable for your activity, ensuring it has a whistle, light and reflective strip, and conforms to European Conformity (EC) guidelines.
- Learn how to use your jacket or buoyancy aid, checking regularly in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
- Remember buoyancy aids DO NOT have the same capacity as a lifejacket, but can assist in keeping a person afloat. Remember the advice – lifejackets are useless unless worn – at all times.
Cardiff Harbour Authority recommends that you always wear a lifejacket when afloat
