It’s been over a year and a half now since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, and while we have made it through much turmoil, COVID-19 still looms over our lives. Every aspect of life has been touched by the virus, which has led us to have new standards for the way we interact with one another. Specifically, the COVID-19 virus has made communication in high-noise environments a laborious task, as people naturally need to be closer to one another to hear each other and social distance rules prevent this. So, what should you do if your high-noise work environment forces you and your colleagues to shout to communicate?

You Need an Effective Communication Solution

Sensear’s SM1P headset is the perfect complement to your social distancing requirements. With our SM1P headsets, employees can have seamless headset-to-headset conversations with each other in high-noise work areas up to 100 feet apart, without having to shout or move in closer to each other. Along with this Short-Range feature, the SM1P connects to cellphones and tablets via Bluetooth® or two-way radios via cable or Bluetooth®.

Here are a few more features:

  • Noise Suppression up to 31 dB NRR
  • Noise-Canceling Boom Microphone
  • 360° Situational Awareness
  • Intrinsic Safety (IS: UL/CSA/TIA) certified versions available
  • VOX capable
  • Li-ion Battery offering up to 24 hours of continuous use

Sensear understands the need for clear communication between team members while maintaining social distance. Our SM1P Bluetooth Series Headset is a perfect solution for communicating with your team members without the need to shout and keep the required 6 feet social distance in high-noise environments.

You Need an Effective Employee Training Solution

Training and onboarding new workers and re-training existing workers on new methods and systems are important concerns to maintain and increase efficiency and production. While employees’ training has always been vital, in times of social distancing, it seems to escalate. Many manufacturers have added to or changed their product lines to assist in the “war” against the corona-virus pandemic and training has become a top priority. For successful training, effective communication is a must.

Sensear’s SmartGroup products are an industry-leading solution for companies that carry out plant tours and training in noisy environments. The tour guide (teacher) and participants (students) will benefit from short-range: headset-to-headset communication up to 100 feet as well as protecting their hearing at the same time. This is achieved through Sensear’s SENS® Technology that enhances speech and suppresses background noise so users can communicate safely and effectively in noisy environments.
