    Good evening all,

    Per ...

    Liked article is loaded with info with info on dam area survival. Well worth glancing at.

    Note that there are various types of life jackets. Besides the recreational types, there's the emergency inflatables and the worker vests for those employed in these areas.

    Meanwhile, dam the dams and stay safe.

    Prep, prep, prep
    and
    factor in safety

    IMO foam based buoyancy aid typically use for whitewater is far more suitable than any offshore use personal flotation device

    Good afternoon Varuna,

    It depends.

    Some like models with built-in body armor. Some like attachments deemed critical, eg automatic strobe light when immersed in water, transponder.

    Some need a vest that fits for work efforts. Others do not need this feature.

    That is what I was referring. The foam based require no periodic inspection unlike their SOLAS compliance counterpart. And for terrestrial usage where bumping into rock or debris is to be expected, the whitewater buoyancy aid is far more suitable.

    Good afternoon Varuna,

    Now understand; appreciate clarification.

    For equipment on US vessels and rigs, sometimes SOLAS and sometimes USCG. Sometimes both.

    SOLAS better than USCG.
