Second batch of lifejackets delivered
UK safety supplier, Ocean Safety, has delivered a second order of 300 PFDs (personal flotation devices) as part of a major contract with Seafish, the UK seafood authority.
The second order follows an initial supply of 300 which have already been delivered.
“We have been very pleased to complete the second stage of the contract which was secured after Seafish successfully applied for funding via the European Fisheries Fund (EFF),” comments Ocean Safety’s sales director, Mark Hart.
Seafish has recently launched its ‘Sea You Home Safe’ campaign, which aims to encourage fishermen to wear a PFD at sea on open decks. Seafish will distribute the Mullion Compact PFDs to commercial fishermen in England and Wales, as part of an ongoing Fishing Industry Safety Group initiative to drive up safety standards.
Seafish is to distribute the Mullion Compact 150N CE PFDs via a number of Fishing Industry Safety Group partners which include the Fishermen’s Mission, the Fishing Industry, the RNLI and the Maritime & Coastguard Agency. Fishermen who have the correct mandatory certification will receive the funded PFDs at safety workshops provided by the organisations.
The qualifying fishermen are located mainly in England, since those in other parts of the UK are already supplied through similar industry-led EFF initiatives.
The Mullion PFD new Mark 3 version was chosen by industry experts and fishermen researching the best product for the scheme as the best solution for safety, comfort, durability and design.
