Online Exclusive Weekly Drill: No. 61

Drill #61: Personal Flotation Devices

Readers will learn about the five types of personal flotation devices (PFDs) and when each should be used.

The drill is designed to be a single page of information to conjure up discussions among your crew members. Sit down and talk about the exercises, and how they may apply to your company. But, just don't read them. Get moving. Head to an appropriate area and train.

Post the information in prominent places in your stations so it's readily available for review.

Please remember to check your Standard Operating Procedures or Guidelines (SOPs/SOGs) before using the drill.
