“What? What did you say? I can’t hear you; let’s get off the plant floor and you can fill me in, after our ears stop ringing.” Is this a typical occurrence in your workplace?
Industrial noise in a work environment is a concern for all employers. This noise can cause hearing loss, stress, interfere with communications, reduce productivity, and potentially cause accidents due to the inability to hear warning shouts or signals. Improving communications and reducing the risk of injury is one of the benefits of a good communication headset.
When trying to decide if a communication headset is right for your work environment, take into consideration your communication needs, the level of hearing protection that is required, and the device’s impact on the wearer’s situational awareness.
Deciding on the right headset can be a bit mind-boggling. Doing a web search for “communication headset” provides thousands of results and not always enough information to understand the difference between each product or brand. How do you interpret this information overload?
