Abu Dhabi Ports hosts Life Jacket Awareness Day
NEW CAMPAIGN LOOKS TO EDUCATE PASSENGERS AND IMPROVE ON-BOARD SAFETY
Abu Dhabi Ports has hosted an open day to raise awareness about the need for all passengers – adults and children – to wear life jackets when on-board vessels docking at its ports. Held for the first time, the ‘Your Safety is Our Aim’ campaign will target passengers with advice and guidance designed to ensure people are familiar with wearing life jackets.
Taking place on 6 & 7th June 2015 at Delma Port and Mugharraq Port, the campaign was done in partnership with the Abu Dhabi Ports Marine Services, the Abu Dhabi Department of Transport, and the Transport Police.
The programme looks to improve the safety culture on all vessels. As part of the campaign, Abu Dhabi Ports will share safety knowledge with passengers, both regular and first-timer users, and conduct an interactive safety induction and practices session to explain the why, when, how and general importance of wearing a life jacket.
