There’s an old saying ‘You can never be too safe’. OK, so maybe it’s not a great saying but it does the job, right?
Safety should be a top priority in any situation, from work to home and everywhere in between. As well as using common sense and making sure you are always aware of your surroundings there and plenty more ways to keep yourself safe and out of harm’s way.
Nearly all of us own a mobile phone, we wouldn’t leave home without it right? And we think that it’s OK because in an emergency we can just call for help? But, what happens if the car breaks down in the middle of nowhere and there’s no signal? Or it’s that crucial moment in an emergency where you need to make a call to alert someone and you run out of credit.
These are typical scenarios that could happen to anyone, and the benefits of radio communication devices are ideal for making your business as well as your personal life safer and generally making daily communication much more efficient.
When using a mobile phone you need to enter a telephone number or scroll through a phone book, then wait for it to ring out and be answered. Eliminate wasting this time by using a two way radio. Instant communication could be critical in an emergency.
Unlike a telephone you can use two way radios to communicate with a group of people at the same time, this is very efficient in a work place situation – especially if there is important information you need to alert people of quickly.
Two way radios are built to last, and are much more durable than other communication devices. Ideal for clumsy people, and accident prone types they will survive damp conditions and a drop to the floor much better than a snazzy glass fronted smart phone.
All emergency services, including ambulance, fire service and police force, still use two way radios. Proving their effectiveness, especially in emergencies, as they are a much more reliable form of communication compared to mobile phones. They are ideal as they work much better than mobiles in high temperatures and are easier to use whilst wearing gloves & masks or when in a dark and poor visibility area.
They can also be a great tool to keep you and your family safe whilst out and about. From a trip to the local shops or when at an outdoor event, it can make the world of difference knowing that you can contact each other simultaneously.
We all know that driving whilst using a mobile phone is illegal, and whilst inconvenient, it really is for our own safety. God knows most of us struggle doing two things at once at the best of times. With a two way radio, driving and communicating is not only legal and safer than using a mobile, it’s a damn site easier too.
