Marine Safety Equipment & Best Practices
You will need a plethora of marine safety equipment, including breathing apparatus and inflatable
boats in UK, very high frequency marine radio, first aid kits, personal survival kits or bags and
many others. However, procuring and stocking up on such marine safety equipment would not be
the endgame. You need to know how to use every piece of marine safety equipment and should be
accustomed with the best practices on sea. Whether you are kayaking or paddle boarding, sailing
or out fishing, you ought to know the quintessential safety practices.
Fortunately, there is a treasure trove of information available online and plenty of videos. You
should know how to use the kill switch, the right way to use a life jacket, how it is to sail in low
light conditions, using inflatable jackets or inflatable boats in UK, how to protect your survival
kit and grab it instantaneously in times of trouble, how to use distress flares, how to use
breathing apparatus and handling all other types of marine safety equipment. Everything from
GPS to radio, the gears are easy to use till the time the sailing gets tough. When tides are against

damaged or you may lose possession of your inflatable boats in UK. You ought to abandon ship
when there is still time and enough scope to safely find your way to the shore, harbour or a nearby
While we usually focus on breathing apparatus and inflatable boats in UK, the need to stay warm
and hydrated should also be treated with priority. Dehydration has many side effects and being
out on the sea in the cold can induce hypothermia. Many lives lost are actually a result of
hypothermia and not drowning as state of the art marine safety equipment is more than capable of
preventing anyone from drowning, even if one doesn’t have any experience in swimming and even
if the tides or waves are very rough.
