The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that U.S. landfills were the last refuge for some 137.7 million tons of waste in 2015 alone. That is in addition to recycling waste and compost waste as well as e-waste. The average person in the United States produces 4.45 pounds of waste per day.
Landfill managers and crews are responsible for the safe disposal of all this waste and so much more, spread out over large spaces. If you manage a landfill facility, you have a huge amount of responsibility under your belt. What you may not know is that push to talk (PTT) two way radios can help you manage your responsibilities more efficiently and safely than ever before. These are just a few ways these radios can help.
Enhance Voice Quality So Important Details Aren’t Lost in Translation
One of the more common problems with using mobile phones to communicate when working around landfills is that there is a lot of noise at any given time. This noise can make it difficult for messages to carry through on regular cellular calls. Plus, no one wants to take their gloves off in these kinds of environments to type out text messages.
PTT two way radios do more than filter out the background noises all around you. They also work by enhancing the voice quality, so the intended message is what you hear and not the noise of working people and vehicles.
Rugged Equipment for Rough Work
Most mobile phones, and many radios on the market aren’t designed to take a beating. That isn’t the case with many PTT two way radios. In fact, some of them feature special rugged designs with remarkable IP ratings making them suitable for work where they may be dropped, kicked, get wet, or deal with wind driven debris.
Allow for Individual and Group Communication
Whether you have a message for your entire team, or you need to make sure a single person on your crew receives specific notifications, push to talk two radios allow you easy communication that is only available to your intended audience. This means your communications are secure and your messages are getting to the people you want to have them.
