Two-way radios are a staple on many work crews who rely on them to connect with dispatch or other team members, but they have their limitations. Radios aren’t optimal for communicating in high-noise environments, when communication needs to flow effortlessly, or in applications where both hands need to be focused on work.
High Noise Environments
How often do is “say again?” your typical response on a two-way radio? In high noise environments like construction areas, you are competing to be heard over the elements and equipment noises. In excavation, you’re battling the drill and potentially confined spaces. In manufacturing, it’s industrial machinery making too much noise for effective communication.
When two-way radios are the prominent communication tool in high-noise environments, the result can be frustrating, challenging and even dangerous. In each one of the examples mentioned above, solid communications can make the difference between safety on the job and injuries.
Pressing and holding the push-to-talk button on a two-way radio requires taking one hand away from your work. Sometimes that’s just fine, but if your hand is controlling a steering wheel or power tool, both hands are needed for safety and productivity.
Jobs that require this level of focus need more than two-way radios for effective, safe communications.
