Can not get over how economical the communication devices for restaurants is now, a tremendous deal for any top-end product!

Every employer has a duty of care under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, to ensure so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of all its employees in the workplace and equally that persons not in their employment are not exposed to risks to their health and safety so far as is reasonably practicable with the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act introduced in 2007, the implications for enterprises in the public and private sectors of not taking lone worker protection seriously have escalated.

Two-way radios are already widely in use in lone worker applications across chemical and manufacturing plants, utilities, mining, security and transport industries where personnel often cover large, remote areas or operate in hazardous environments.

However, with the increase in flexible working times, care in the community services, home deliveries and reductions in workforces operating from fixed locations, more people than ever are now operating as lone workers, often in situations where they may be exposed to potential accidents and inappropriate or violent behaviour.

While the reliability and quality of any Kenwood Earpiece would prove to be an asset in most lone worker scenarios, the NEXEDGE range of digital two-way hand portable walkie talkies and mobile in-vehicle two-way radio units offer much more than the ability to transmit voice and data instantly and efficiently.

All models feature Emergency Key and Emergency Call features as standard, while some advanced models additionally offer Lone Worker and an Emergency Advanced Motion Detection Function, which make them ideal for incorporating within a robust health and safety and lone worker policy.

NEXEDGE Digital Two-way Radios with Lone Worker features include both hand-portable walkie talkies and mobile in-vehicle units.

I don’t know how you came here because you read it on social media, twitter, facebook, google +, stumble upon or somewhere else. But thank you for visiting and I hope you take pleasure in reading this as much as I did.

Digital radio technology from Sepura in Cambridge UK is gaining significant traction in the Australian mining sector.

Sepura TETRA two Way Radios have been chosen to operate on the first long haul railway radio network owned by the major Australian mining organisation Fortescue Metals Group (FMG).

The world-first contract was won in conjunction with Radlink, one of Sepuras longstanding and experienced partners in Australia.

FMG first adopted TETRA technology in 2010 as a future-proof company-wide standard for all communications further to a successful pilot site roll out at its flagship iron ore mine of Christmas Creek in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

The TETRA system now covers all the companys operations and provides a unified communications platform to enable the smooth running of activities across all facets of the business.
The new TETRA system deployed by FMGs rail network comprises 24 sites, over 400 km of rail roads and more than 800 Sepura TETRA terminals.

Doug Bowden, senior business development manager at Sepura said: In the last two years we have witnessed the growing adoption of TETRA by the mining sector in Australia, Europe and also in the American continent and believe that Sepura has played a significant part in stimulating this growth.
