Workers in a manufacturing industry setting require unique forms of communication catered to their surroundings. Excessive noise, hazardous chemicals and heavy equipment are just some of the many issues faced by factory workers which are capable of disrupting their ability to communicate as well as jeopardising their safety.

With the right tools however, good communication and awareness between staff can help the operations of a factory run smoothly and efficiently, keeping workers productive and injury free. Constantly being in touch means that people can ask for help in case of an injury or an emergency, which is key when workers are left alone in dangerous conditions.
