Why Choose 2-Way Radio in a Manufacturing Environment?
Manufacturing is one of the most dangerous industries in the UK and with workers being encouraged to work at a distance it has become even more challenging.
Would You Be Aware of a Worker That May Have Fallen or Had an Accident?
61,000 - that's the number of non-fatal injuries to manufacturing workers recorded in 2018/19. Worse still, there were 26 fatalities.(1)
With the man down feature on Eemits 2-way radios, you can be alerted to any members of staff that may have had an accident, wherever their location.
This feature enhances the safety of workers by monitoring their movements. An integrated accelerometer in the radio senses that the user has fallen or not moved for a set period of time and will sound an alarm enabling the operators to call for assistance.
Response times are greatly improved when using the man down feature. The loud alarm and build-in GPS ensure that the team can quickly and efficiently locate the worker.
Are Your Staff Working Alone?
The Health and Safety Executive defines a lone worker as 'those who work by themselves without close or direct supervision.'
There is an estimated 6.8 million people working alone in the UK, many of these are in the manufacturing industry.(2)
The Eemits lone worker feature is one of the many available within the suite, designed especially for workers who are operating in isolated environments.
With social distancing measures still in place, staff are being encouraged to work at a greater distance from one another which in some cases means that they are working in complete isolation. By using the lone worker feature, their whereabouts can be monitored, and an emergency alarm can be activated if a worker fails to respond to alerts. Lone workers will also have the ability to sound the alarm if they are in danger, alerting others and prompting a swift response.
