In an environment where Health & Safety standards are critical, Contact Radio can assist by providing a reliable and cost effective two way radio system based upon your site’s needs.

Using our experience we can tailor a package that will guarantee critical communication across site. Where necessary, we will carry out site trials and advise on what features are available.

This may include a system that features man down, lone worker, hands free operation or emergency calling.

We will also look to future proof the system by taking into consideration an increase in work force, site foot print and the possibility of integrating sites together.

Equipment supplied is rugged and durable and suitable for a harsh working environment. We can put a service agreement in place for regular servicing and loan stock to ensure you are never without equipment.

Where your health and safety representative advises ATEX two way radio equipment must be used, our experienced team can recommend suitable products.
