Two-way radio solutions to anticipate emergencies

The constant growth in demand for oil, wood and minerals, forces companies in the sector to extract more and more in remote regions and where the risk is greater, while maintaining productivity and respecting the standards of safety.

Canadian mineral production increased 4.3% in 2018 compared to 2017. - Natural Resources Canada, Statistics Canada.
The forest, mining and petroleum industries are therefore facing significant challenges regarding employee safety, environment and infrastructures issues. Poor communication between employees not only puts exposed workers at risk, but can lead to damage to the infrastructure, or even environmental damage, which can lead to production downtime.

It therefore becomes important to anticipate as much as possible any emergencies that may arise by optimally equipping the maintenance, inspection and infrastructure test stations with robust and suitable communication tools, such as Motorola walkie-talkie.

In fact, the logging, mining and petroleum exploitation zones are not or hardly covered by mobile networks. However, teams need instant and clear communication solutions.
There are several kinds of walkie-talkies depending on the use.

Improve safety to increase productivity

Safety is one of the major challenges in these sectors.
The risks of mishandling can be reduced thanks to effective communication between employees. On land or at sea, in remote areas or at the refinery, two-way radio solutions as a direct and instant communication channel provide teams with the most suitable operation for these sectors. They cover large areas where the terrain is rugged.
There are different types of two-way radios to meet the needs of specific sectors. The supplied accessories comply with safety standards such as FM, UL, CSA, ATEX and IECEx.

Two-way radio solutions adapted to hazardous work environments

Two-way radio solutions are tailored to the noisy work environment in which crews operate. Two-way radios produce a loud, clear sound, reducing background noise in the surrounding area. They thus ensure that the message is understood right the first time.
Wearing a closed headsets ensures good sound insulation from surrounding noise. It effectively reduces the volume of external noise by at least 20 dB.
With better information, employees can make better decisions, protect themselves from the dangers of the sector, and thus increase productivity.
