Al Shaali Marine Maldives has signed a partnership with National Boating Association of Maldives (NBAM) to conduct the "Life Jacket, Wear it" campaign.  

During a small ceremony held today (October 23, 2021) at NBAM Office, Al Shaali Marine Maldives signed as the first partner of the campaign. General Manager, Mr. Ismail Shareef signed on behalf of Al Shaali Marine Maldives.  

NBAM proposed to organize and hold a nationwide campaign titled, ‘Wear it #SafetyFirst Campaign’ to focus on the responsibility of safety required from vessel skippers. ‘You’re the skipper – You’re responsible’ is an initiative aimed at encouraging recreational and commercial boat operators to take responsibility for their actions on the water and for skippers to be aware that they are ultimately responsible. 

The campaign will aim to raise awareness on the impact of their behavior and alert people to the increased likelihood of experiencing an unfortunate event if safety equipment is neglected on boat. The awareness campaign is crucial for maritime safety, especially regarding the importance of wearing life jackets. 

Additionally, in regard to the recent tragic cases, NBAM believes that this should be implemented promptly. The importance of this campaign is not just for liveaboards however, for the entire boating sector of Maldives, said NBAM.
