The safety of people onboard is of paramount importance. Therefore, ships must carry appropriate life-saving appliances, including lifeboats, lifebuoys, life-jackets, liferafts and many others in case of emergency to protect their lives at sea.
The carriage of life-saving appliances are made mandatory as per the SOLAS Convention. Enroll to this course and learn the specific technical requirements for the manufacturing, testing, maintenance and record keeping of life-saving appliances as mentioned in the International Life-Saving Appliance (LSA) Code.
