Lifejacket checklist

Lifejacket checklist

If your staff use automatic self-inflating lifejackets, they will need to carry out regular checks. Our Lifejacket Checklist will help them to understand what’s needed.

How to use it

Before you use this checklist obtain a copy of the manufacturer’s instructions for your particular type of lifejacket. These should include care and maintenance instructions and will help you to tailor our document to suit your particular equipment.

Our document includes two sections - “Pre-wear checks” and the “Overnight inflation check”.

You can use the form in several ways; as a:

  • reminder to staff of the pre-wear checks they should carry out before using the lifejacket each day (pre-wear checks are shown in Part 1 of the form)
  • checklist to be completed by a storesperson or supervisor before issuing the lifejacket
  • form for recording routine user checks, e.g. once per month.

A frequently used lifejacket which has been issued to an individual should be checked daily, and then at least once per month they should fill in both sections of the checklist, i.e. both the pre-wear and overnight inflation check.
