Giving a tour or even training in a high noise environment can be a challenge. Sure, you could use a megaphone, making yourself louder than the background noise, but that only elevates the noise level, and there is no guarantee everyone in your group will hear you. The solution: a Plant Tour Communication System.

"Exposure to silica can be deadly, and limiting that exposure is essential. Every year, many exposed workers not only lose their ability to work, but also to breathe. This proposal is expected to prevent thousands of deaths from silicosis – an incurable and progressive disease – as well as lung cancer, other respiratory diseases, and kidney disease. Workers affected by silica are fathers, mothers, sisters and brothers lost to entirely preventable illnesses. We're looking forward to public comment on the proposal."

-Dr. David Michaels Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health

Think about headsets, there are many options available for industrial customers to consider these days. From simple passive headsets that deliver a basic hearing protection solution to sophisticated electronic headsets that use Digital Signal Processing to separate speech from noise.

But when it comes to Intrinsically Safe Headsets the options are more limited because developing and manufacturing an Intrinsically Safe Headset is a massive undertaking in both financial resources and engineering capability.

As a result of the investment and technical know how needed to commercialize this type of headset only a handful of leading headset companies have committed the funds and devoted the necessary resources to commercialize an Intrinsically Safe Headset.
