Surf Life Saving Australia in conjunction with James Cook University, VicLabs and SAI Global commenced the initial testing to develop the world’s first specification/standard for low buoyancy water safety gear known as lifejackets.
The testing in Sydney, over Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th April 2014, will look at the minimum buoyancy levels required in lifejackets to bring a person to the surface, and the maximum buoyancy levels in lifejackets that allow individuals to move efficiently through the water without significantly impacting their physical exertion.
