Will people still be able to self-service their lifejackets?
In NSW, you must service inflatable lifejackets once a year, or in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions.
If you cannot remember when your lifejacket was last serviced, it’s recommended that you get it serviced straight away. Keep receipts and certificates as evidence of servicing. You must also keep a record of the date your lifejacket was serviced on the inside of your lifejacket.
Sometimes, you can self-service a lifejacket by following the manufacturer’s instructions. The instructions are either supplied with the new lifejacket, printed on the lifejacket itself, or available on the manufacturer’s website.
If there are no instructions for how to self-service your lifejacket you will need to have it serviced by a servicing agent. You can find your nearest lifejacket servicing agent here: https://www.lifejacketwearit.com.au/find-store-or-service-centre
