SAFETY EQUIPMENT » SOLAS SAFETY EQUIPMENT

The regulations
SOLAS lifejackets come under the Directive 96/98/EC of the European Union, which refers to the obligatory marine equipment in EU vessels. In addition to the lifejackets, this regulation also
includes all types of personal saving appliances that are necessary on community ships. The lifejackets of this category are approved to the SOLAS (Safety Of Life At Sea) regulation and should
always bear the relevant certification, in which case it is the steering wheel mark. SOLAS lifejackets can save a person’s life anywhere and irrespective of the weather conditions. Therefore, the
tests that these lifejackets should pass are much more demanding and hard. More emphasis is given on their effectiveness as lifesaving appliances and less in the aesthetic aspect.


General characteristics.
The colour of the SOLAS lifejackets is always orange and it has been standardised, since it is visible under all weather conditions. Furthermore, they should have retro reflective tapes, which are visible
from a long distance.


Use
In most cases the SOLAS lifejackets are not purchased by the end user from a shop. The owner of the vessel is required to equip the vessel with it and place it on a point that is easily accessible should the
worst happen. SOLAS lifejackets are not as comfortable as 100Newton lifejackets or buoyancy aids. As they are not worn at all times but rather only when needed, SOLAS lifejackets are able to keep the
wearer afloat even an unconscious or heavy person under very bad weather conditions.
Instructions of Use
Most SOLAS lifejackets are in the form of lifebelt. In case you need to wear it, headfirst and fasten the straps around the waist. Always fasten the straps, so as to have a good fit but without being too tight
or too loose. Pay attention that the side with the retro reflective tapes is on top.


Maintenance / Replacement
It is the shipping companies responsibility to maintain in good condition all the lifejackets. The replacement of the SOLAS lifejackets is to the satisfaction of the surveyors of the National Marine Administration
or the Classification Society.
