Stay Safe Advice & Tips

Having safely installed systems is only part of the story. Two-thirds of fire and carbon monoxide risks arise from the way that engines, appliances, systems and fuels are used and maintained.

Together with partners including Fire Kills, CoGDEM, the Health Protection Agency, the Solid Fuel Association, Soliftec and the Electrical Safety First, and a lot of help from the marine trade and boat user organisations, we have collected a lot of useful advice and information to help you to go boating and stay safe.
