Recreational boating safety improvements
Maritime Safety Queensland is introducing reforms to improve boating safety. These reforms are in response to feedback from consultation, coronial recommendations and changes in recreational boating trends.
The reforms include:
- Introducing licensing and operational improvements to lessen the chance of a marine incident.
- Safety equipment improvements to increase the chance of surviving a marine incident.
- Several minor miscellaneous improvements.
The Recreational Boating Safety Improvements Report outlines in detail the improvements that are going to be made to current boating safety requirements.
