Improve Worker Safety and Security Using Two-Way Radio
Many accidents that happen in the manufacturing industry are avoidable.
All manufacturing businesses are required to prepare a safety report and send it to the Competent Authority as evidence that all measures necessary have been taken to prevent any major accidents and to limit the consequences to people and the environment of any that do occur.
Once problems become apparent they should be escalated to the appropriate authority. Measures should be then put in place to prevent an issue from arising.
Two-way radios improve communication between staff members and between staff and management. This communication can make the difference between an accident occurring and communicating a hazard to prevent an accident.
Eemits Communications can provide radios which are suitable for each and every worker. Small, lightweight and easy-to-carry devices suitable for Managers. Rugged radios which can withstand knocks and have a long battery life suitable for Supervisors and Maintenance Engineers.
Is Your Business Losing Money as a Result of Poor Health and Safety?
The economic cost each year due to work-related ill health in manufacturing amounts to £1.1bn. This accounts for 7% of the total cost across all industries (1).
The resulting fines from the prosecution enforcement notices totalled around £21m, with an average fine per case of £210,000 (2).
Two-way radios provided by Eemits Communications can be tailored to your specific business needs by choosing the features which will have the greatest impact on the safety of your workforce.
By using a combination of safety features you are minimising the risk of a worker getting injured and therefore reducing the likelihood of having to compensate workers for injuries or harm caused whilst at a workplace.
Man Down - The Man Down feature monitors a workers' movements. Should a worker not move for a set time, an alarm is triggered, and an emergency alarm alerts Operators so that they can identify of a worker has become incapacitated and then call for assistance.
Lone Worker - The Lone Worker feature is designed for workers who work alone in isolated environments. Activity is remotely monitored and if a worker fails to respond to periodic alerts an emergency alarm is triggered to alert Operators.
Intelligent Audio - The Intelligent Audio feature adjusts the volume automatically in-line with fluctuating background noise. This ensures that all commands are heard and understood and prevents requests for help from being ignored.
Panic Button - The Panic Button feature allows users to send an alarm to other radio users or summon help with one touch, without having to press the PTT button, enabling help to be deployed quickly and efficiently.
These features can help you to identify if there is a potential health issue regarding a member of staff or help to identify hazards to prevent a problem from arising.
