Eemits Significantly Improves Communications and Safety at Owens Corning by Putting the Right Device into the Hands of their Workforce
Eemits Communications has worked closely with Owens Corning Veil UK to significantly improve the coverage and quality of their two-way radio communications whilst also enhancing the safety of staff within the business.
As a leader in insulation, roofing and fibreglass composites, Owens Corning is a global operation with over 17,000 staff working across 33 countries. Using licence free radios at its site based in Liversedge, West Yorkshire the company was having issues with its coverage and its workers often found it difficult to hear communications in its noisy environments.
Taking elements of our unique modular platform - TRBOCALL - the business required a series of radios that would serve different purposes. The main requirement from the workforce was to have a small and compact radio and have the ability to communicate hands free whilst performing tasks. Management also saw the opportunity to add the lone worker, mandown and panic alarm safety features. As such, we supplied a series of Motorola's digital screened DP3661e and non-screened DP3441e hand portable radios, the smallest radio's available in the range.
The DP3661e screened version will be used by managers who will receive emergency alerts should any problems arise. With the integrated safety features across workers radios, such as mandown, should a worker trip or fall, or not respond to an alert, an alarm will be triggered to the managers radio where they will see on their screen which workers alarm has sounded so they can respond as quickly as possible.
The non-screened radios will be used by the engineers on site. With intelligent audio integrated the noise of the radio will be automatically adjusted in line with fluctuating background noises ensuring everything is clearly understood. This has overcome a serious problem that workers were experiencing and it now means that they have streamlined, clear and consistent communications. To aid with operating the radios in hands free mode Impress VOX (voice activated transmit) audio accessories were also supplied.
Taking out service from the start as part of the service wrap element of the system, the company can rest assure that should a problem occur with the system, it will be dealt with as swiftly as possible.
We are delighted to have worked with the company and significantly improved their communications and safety of its staff which is extremely vital in working environments such as Owens Corning.
