Old4New lifejacket upgrade opportunities in time for Father's Day

Woodman Point and Hillarys Boat Harbour are the next stops for the Department of Transport's (DoT) very successful Old4New lifejacket upgrade program - just in time for Father's Day.

Woodman Point and Hillarys Boat Harbour are the next stops for the Department of Transport's (DoT) very successful Old4New lifejacket upgrade program - just in time for Father's Day.

DoT Safety Education Manager Laurie Adams said a lifejacket was the perfect Father's Day gift for a Dad who enjoys boating or the growing number of on water activities requiring a lifejacket.

"Delivered in conjunction with the Royal Life Saving Society of Western Australia, Old4New allows old, damaged, obsolete or foam filled lifejackets to be exchanged for a voucher for use at a local retail outlet when purchasing a new lifejacket," Mr Adams said.

"It is a hugely successful program and this year has seen about 1,000 unsafe lifejackets taken off boats in WA."

Voucher limits and restrictions are in place to ensure the benefits of the program apply to as many vessels as possible so people who want to participate should check the guidelines on the Lifejackets page.

The Old4New initiative spearheads a State-wide education campaign promoting the benefits of wearing lifejackets at all times while boating.

"The aim is to change people's behaviour and improve the safety of people who enjoy boating in WA," Mr Adams said.

Skippers can participate in the Old4New program at the following locations:

  • Woodman Point Boat Ramp: 9am to 11am, Saturday 26 August 2017
  • Hillarys Boat Harbour Boat Ramp: 9am to 11am, Sunday 27 August 2017

WA primary teachers encouraged to get on board updated Junior Crew

The popular Department of Transport (DoT) primary school education program Junior Crew has been updated to provide WA's next generation of boat skippers early learning about safety on the water.

The popular Department of Transport (DoT) primary school education program Junior Crew has been updated to provide WA's next generation of boat skippers early learning about safety on the water.

Since its launch in 2009 more than 400 copies of the resource have been distributed to WA schools to introduce children in years three, four and five to water safety with fun hands on learning activities. The number of schools using the resource peaked in 2012 with 235 schools and 380 teachers implementing the program in WA.

DoT's Manager Safety Education Laurie Adams said after working closely with the School Curriculum and Standards Authority, the program had been updated to align with recent changes to the school curriculum in WA.

"Going forward WA teachers can continue to have confidence in this wonderful program which to date has been hugely successful in delivering boating safety messages to our youngest mariners," Mr Adams said.

A new Junior Crew activity book is now included in the bank of resources available to teachers using the program which provides students with a basic understanding of the skills and knowledge required to be safe on the water.

The program provides a professionally produced resource pack for teachers including learning aides such as a story book introducing students to Skip the Boat Safe Bird, posters to promote discussion, worksheets catering for differing year levels and flash cards for use in lesson delivery.

A feature of the program allows for students to receive a visit from Skip, DoT marine officers and a patrol vessel. For more information about the Junior Crew program or to order a resource pack teachers can visit Junior Crew page.

Skippers in the Pilbara are being told to check their vessel before each trip and ensure their safety gear is in good working order.

Skippers in the Pilbara are being told to check their vessel before each trip and ensure their safety gear is in good working order.

As part of a renewed focus on boat safety during the peak of the season in the North West the Department of Transport's (DoT) Marine Safety Education Trailer is touring the region and there's an opportunity to participate in the very successful Old4New lifejacket upgrade at Karratha's popular FeNaClNG event.

DoT Manager Safety Education Laurie Adams said the Old4New program, delivered in conjunction with the Royal Life Saving Society of Western Australia, was an upgrade opportunity where old, damaged, obsolete or foam filled lifejackets could be exchanged for a voucher for use at a local retail outlet when purchasing a new lifejacket.

"It is a hugely successful program and this year has seen more than 800 unsafe lifejackets taken off boats in WA," Mr Adams said.

Voucher limits and restrictions are in place to ensure the benefits of the program apply to as many vessels as possible so people who want to participate should check the guidelines at www.transport.wa.gov.au/lifejackets

Mr Adams said skippers could also get updates and tips on safe boating and access the latest DoT boating guides and other free publications from the Marine Safety Education Trailer as it tours the North West.

"Marine education and regional transport officers who permanently patrol local waters will be on hand to discuss issues and promote BEST checks before each voyage," Mr Adams said.

Old4New will be at FeNaClNG from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm on Saturday August 5, 2017.
