The SOLAS LSA Code specifies rules for ease of wearability of a lifejacket without assistance, comfort of the wearer, and the minimum lifting capabilities to protect conscious and unconscious people from swallowing water accidentally. In addition, there are detailed instructions as to the nature, quality, and ability of the lifejackets.
Reasons to Buy: Good padding, metal harness tether loopReasons to Avoid: less buoyancy meant a slower roll over timeVerdict: The padding was comfortable, although the inflation tube and light assembly inside the lifejacket sat over the collar bone, which could create a pressure point over time. Unlike the longer bladder of the other Baltic lifejackets, this had a shorter, higher bladder with more rounded lobes. The standard Baltic hood had a good support arch, but the elastic straps tended to slip off the bladder. It also let spray in.
Our testers checked how easy and quickly our lifejackets were able to change from full foulies, then down to a t-shirt then back again. The double adjuster was a popular method and was scored highly by our testers.
The cut and design of lifejackets varies a lot. From high cut waistcoat styles that suited the men or wider shouldered and taller people and the longer in the body cut lifejackets tended to suit a slimmer person with a waist for the lifejacket to cinch into.
Some lifejackets have been well thought through. What do we do with the long surplus piece of webbing? what about all the flappy strappy bits? Are they neatly stowed? Lifejackets that had better stowage of surplus dangly bits were scored highly.
e) Use of "expired" NIOSH-approved particulate respiratorsAs part of pandemic and emergency planning, many organizations have stockpiled particulate respirators, such as N95 filtering facepiece respirators. Many of the manufacturers of these respirators have provided a manufacturer-designated shelf life. In times when supply issues are critical like a pandemic, employers may have to use respirators beyond the "expiry date." A NIOSH study has indicated that these respirators may meet the performance standards if the manufacturers' storage recommendations are followed. WorkSafeBC accepts the use of these "expired" NIOSH-approved particulate respirators with the following provisions:The expired respirators can only be used in an emergency and should only be used as a last resortThe employer uses them in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions, including instructions relating to the use of expired respiratorsThe respirators have been stored in accordance with the manufacturer's instructionsThe workers are informed of their use The employer must ensure the following precautionary measures are followed:Workers must visually inspect the respirator to determine if its integrity has been compromised;Before use, the worker checks that components such as straps, nose clip, and foam material did not degrade, which can affect the quality of the fit and seal Workers have been fit tested to the respirator, and can perform user seal checks and know how to don and doff the respirator properlyG8.33(2)-2 Interchange of equipment componentsRetired November 23, 2010
If there are exposures to more than one chemical at one time (such as to a complex solvent mixture), the possibility of additive or synergistic effects should be assessed. Normally, additive and synergistic effects should be considered when profiling a worker's exposure to airborne contaminants -- a requirement of Regulation section 5.51 (see OHS GuidelineG5.51). It is prudent to consider additive/synergistic effects for the respirator selection process as well. However, at this time, NIOSH, OSHA, WorkSafeBC, other agencies, as well as respirator manufacturers, have not finalized the method for incorporating additive and synergistic effects into the selection process. Until such time the methodology has been finalized, WorkSafeBC Prevention officers and persons responsible for a company's respirator program are advised to use the instructions in OHS Guideline G8.33-1 or CSA Standard Z94.4-18, Selection, Use, and Care of Respirators for selecting the appropriate device when confronted with multi-contaminant exposures. A detailed chart is available in CSA Standard Z94.4-18, Selection, Use, and Care of Respirators to facilitate the selection process. Rather than using the maximum use concentration, however, CSA uses the highest hazard ratio (HHR), which is the ratio of airborne concentration to the exposure limit, for selecting the appropriate respirator.
The Premier Compact lifejacket by Crewsaver is a 49.2% smaller alternative to the original Premier. MED approved, easy to stow, and its high visibility fabric, foam and webbing are a proven success in the field. 2b1af7f3a8
