New Marine safety Act Victoria
« on: June 05, 2012, 10:03:41 PM »
Please be aware of the new Marine Safety Act coming into effect on 1 July 2012 in Victoria. The new Marine Safety Act imposes a range of duties on recreational boaters to act safely.
 The new Marine Safety Act 2010 (Vic) will provide for safe marine operations in Victoria. The Act commences on 1 July 2012.
 The Marine Safety Act will replace the Marine Act 1988 (Vic), which was reviewed to address the changing safety profile of the maritime industry and as part of a broader transport legislation review in Victoria.
 Marine Safety Act 2010 (Vic) - on the Victorian Legislation and Parliamentary Documents website
 Key requirements
 The Marine Safety Act will introduce a range of new requirements, including:
  • an improved framework to ensure vessels are fit for purpose and those who operate them are properly skilled
  • safety duties for all persons and parties responsible for marine safety
  • tougher penalties and additional enforcement tools to address non-compliance with marine safety legislation and waterway rules.
More information
 Information about how these changes to legislation will affect waterway managers and recreational boaters is available on the following pages:
 New recreational boating requirements - overview of some of the key requirements such as licensing, registration and safe operation.
 Safety duties for recreational boaters - an overview of the roles and responsibilities of recreational boaters under the new Act.
 Of specific importance please take note that you must:
  • take reasonable care for your own safety take reasonable care for the safety of people who may be affected by your acts or omissions not wilfully/recklessly place at risk the safety of another person who is on board or in the immediate vicinity of the vessel.

Re Marine Safety Victoria. All riders please remember the 5knot zone at Safety Beach is now 500 metres off shore. Not 200metres. This area is extremely busy with the sailing club just down the road so please remember not to go within 50metres of other vessels while doing more than 5knots (walking pace) that also includes other PWC users.
