How Push-to-Talk Two Way Radios Improve Construction Project Communication

Construction project sites are no joking matter when it comes to danger lurking around every corner. Effective communication on these sites is critical for the safety of all involved — which is why push-to-talk two way radios are so important for use on modern construction sites.

These are just a few ways you can use PTT radios to improve your construction zone communication.

Reduce Crane Injuries and Accidents

Crane operators function with limited lines of sight. They rely on people on the ground to communicate with them about potential impediments, power lines, pedestrians, and other possible hazards as they perform their precision tasks.

Once done with hand signals, today’s crane operators can rely on push-to-talk radios for one-touch ease when it comes to critical communication. The real benefit is an overall reduction of accidents, injuries, and other crane-related emergency situations.

Faster Emergency Response Times

Despite your most diligent efforts, injuries happen on construction sites all the time. When they do, fast, effective communication can mean the difference between life and death.

Push-to-talk two way radios are equipped with SOS buttons for emergency situations. These buttons cut through any other chatter on the radios and broadcast specific information about the emergency so that the appropriate help can arrive promptly.

Ideal Accessory Offerings

While many on your construction crew might not be all the keen on accessorizing, the right accessories for push-to-talk two way radios can make a world of difference. For instance, noise canceling headsets can cut through the background noise that is so widespread on constructions sites enabling crystal clear communication. This means no vital messages or project information is missed because someone was a little too happy with the jackhammer.

Get On-the-Fly Feedback from All Your Experts

Chances are you have “go to” people on your construction crew for various specific problems, issues, concerns, and questions. You can’t always be in the same room to consult or plan out projects. That doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from their expertise – even if they’re working in the field. You can simply bring all the experts together for a single session with grouping options. This allows you to communicate with everyone in a specific group at once. All your experts on one “call” so you can bring their collective knowledge to the table without missing a beat.
