TWO-WAY RADIO

Going back a few years now it seemed that mobile radio was nearing the end of its life with our typical users as cellular coverage grew and everyone had a least one cell phone, then came the reality that cell phones do not replace mobile radio.  Mobile radio is a business tool, rather than a toy and a well-planned communication system is critical to the health and safety of your employees.  You won’t catch employees using Facebook or other social media on their two way radios during work time!
 
Mobile radio systems are designed to provide coverage where people work and under current health and safety legislation you must ensure your employees have a means of communication at all times.  Failure to do this can result in hefty fines not to mention in the event of an accident or incident how this would affect you financially and emotionally.
