COVID-19 and Social Distancing with Two Way Radios
THE BIG SAFETY QUESTION:
Are your workers at risk if they:
- Communicate Face to Face on a Regular Basis?
- Need to Travel Through the Workplace to Communicate with Colleagues?
How can your business minimise the risk?
As businesses start to reopen we thought we would follow up with some practical
information about how your two way radio system can help your organisation
adhere to the Social Distancing Guidelines recently published by the UK
Government. The full guidance can be found<< here >>
The UK Government has encouraged businesses to use Two Way Radios to overcome the problem of Social Distancing in the work place. As you already know, your Two Way Radio system already provides a cost effective way of instantly communicating with colleagues who are not in the same room, which means employees don’t have to meet face to face or use a telephone that may not be answered. This can easily be incorporated as one or more of your control measures in the Risk Assessment that your organisation will be required to produce to help their employees work safely during coronavirus (COVID-19). It’s a really simple way to make best use of a resource that your organisation has already invested in.
We've attached a brochure << Enhancing Communications During Social Distancing >> produced by Motorola that describes the benefits of using a two-way radio system to enhance communications during social distancing. The brochure includes background information on two-way radio and gives examples of situations where two-way radios can help to keep teams running efficiently.
We hope you find this communication useful as it should help your organisation to get the most out of your Two Way Radio system to Socially Distance within the work place.
