Lloyd’s Register Recognizes Cobham Life Support’s ‘Survivor+’


Published May 6, 2014
Cobham Life Support

Survivor+™, Cobham Life Support’s new wearable personal overboard survival system, has received a certificate of compliance from Lloyd’s Register. To achieve the required standard, Survivor+ successfully completed all the materials and performance testing required under the IMO Life-Saving Appliance (LSA) Code, Section II, which allows it to be recognized internationally by the commercial maritime and offshore oil and gas industries as an IMO compliant personal life-saving appliance.

A significant step-change in worker safety, Survivor+ incorporates a SOLAS-approved inflatable life jacket and a tethered, military-qualified, personal life raft into a single compact vest. The integration of the life vest and raft, using Cobham’s own vacuum-packing technology, is so ground-breaking, that no specific SOLAS category exists for it. Recognizing this, Cobham Life Support submitted Survivor+ for extensive laboratory and performance testing procedures witnessed by Lloyd’s Register Surveyors. The successful testing resulted in a certificate of compliance for the system by Lloyd’s Register, under IMO Resolution A.520 (13) for Personal Life-Saving Appliances. This IMO resolution was created to facilitate the evaluation, testing and acceptance of newly-developed products that do not fit into existing categories under SOLAS, “but which will provide the same or higher safety standards”.
