TITLE
Audio health and safety messaging
ARTICLE
Whilst signs can have some impact on site health and safety, it was felt that the communication process could be improved. This was achieved by issuing verbal instructions and requests around the site using a ‘Speech Pod’ which sends out audio messages to gain greater attention from workers.

The unit has movement and heat detection capabilities. Once a person is within the detection range a prerecorded message is relayed. Up to seven messages can be stored and if required, these can be played in multiple languages.

The units are mounted in key area such as the ‘In’ and ‘Out’ weighbridge and they convey important messages such as instructions to remain in vehicles and the correct PPE that must be worn on site.
