In every land surveying business, communication is paramount. You need every team member to be able to easily communicate with one another and people at the office when they’re out in the field to streamline operations and ensure safety.
A simple and effective way to improve communication, bolster efficiency, and increase safety and emergency response time is to implement push to talk two-way radios. Below, we’ll go over some of the benefits of using push to talk two-way radios for land surveying.
Every business, land surveying businesses not excluded, wants practical and affordable ways to improve. PTT two-way radios are an affordable option for every business.
They have relatively low start-up costs and are much cheaper and more effective than outfitting employees with mobile phones.
PTT two-way radios are also extremely reliable. With cell phones, you need a good cellular connection to ensure that any texts or calls can be sent and received. This is not an issue with PTT two-way radios.
Two-way radios are long-distance and allow for clear communication from anywhere, regardless of cell connection. Therefore, you can ensure that team members and managers will always be able to communicate with employees wherever they are.
PTT two-way radios also come with a durability rating, known as its IP rating. The rating is used to determine how durable each radio is to solid matter like dirt and sand along with moisture and liquid matter.
If you have employees working out in the field, you want to ensure that your radios can resist the elements. Otherwise, your employees may be left without any means of communication. That’s why we offer radios that are extremely resilient to both solid and liquid matter.
Safety and emergency response
Land surveyor businesses require workers out in the field to sometimes go to remote destinations. Working outside already provides potential hazards for employees. Add that poor cellular connection and a remote location and you have the perfect storm for a long response time.
PTT two-way radios offer an SOS/Panic button that is crucial for land surveyors’ safety and can mean the difference between life and death. This is even more important when land surveyors are out in the field alone. If they get seriously injured they may be unable to speak on the radio or not have time. But with the SOS/Panic button they can get the help they need as quickly as possible.
Taking this extra precaution will not only improve the safety of your workers, but it will decrease liability and may even improve job results.
