Staying safe using a water jet pack
It is important to realise that using a water jet pack poses a very real risk of injury even when used in optimum circumstances. Error from the jet pack pilot, failure of the jet pack or watercraft, adverse environmental conditions above or below the water or simply bad luck can put you at risk of serious injury or even death. To stay safe, take note of the following points:
- Before using a water jet pack, ensure that the device has been fully inspected. Water jet packs must be inspected before and after each use to make sure that they are operating correctly. They should be serviced according to the manufacturer’s recommendations and regularly maintained.
- Ensure that factors such as weather conditions, the density of the water, where the water jet pack will be operated and the safety of those both in and around the water have all been considered for safe operation of the device.
- You must be able to swim comfortably in open water and should never undertake such an activity without wearing both a protective helmet and a regulation personal flotation device to keep yourself safe.
If you have been injured
Sometimes, accidents happen and these instances of bad luck are occasionally unavoidable. However, if the cause of your injuries is due to someone else’s negligence, you may have a case for compensation. If you are unsure – give us a call; our helpful advisors at Accident Advice Helpline are trained specialists who will be able to advise you further
If you do sustain injuries from a water jet pack accident, try to gather evidence where possible to support your claim.
