Communication and Hearing Protection

Communication & Hearing Protection

Protecting the hearing of workers by blocking out noise is only part of the challenge for industrial business owners. Of course the elimination of ALL noise is rarely the most appropriate answer. More often than not it is important that factory operatives and other industrial workers can hear their fellow workers and communicate effectively with them during their shifts. It is also often imperative that they are able to hear warning signals and alerts in and around their working environment. These kinds of challenges vary from sector to sector and site to site in industry.

Hearing Protection Challenges

For example – ATEX is the name commonly given to the two European Directives for controlling explosive atmospheres. ATEX safety equipment has been approved for explosive environments – i.e. areas that contain combustible dusts, flammable gases or vapours. ProtectHear® offers a range of products, branded SpeakHear®, that solve these kinds of challenges, including  a range of ATEX approved accessories to accommodate customers that need to comply with these safety regulations.

The SpeakHear® Range of Communication Accessories

There is a full range of SpeakHear® communication accessories on offer for ProtectHear® custom moulded, vented ear plugs.  The SpeakHear® range is compatible with well-known brands of industrial communication equipment such as Motorola, Hytera, Kenwood, Icom, Maxon, Simoco, Hytera, Yaseu and many more.  SpeakHear® systems offer communication options for listen only, two-way systems or boom mic systems, with noise cancelling technology, and some are connectable to mobile and DECT phones (Digital Enhanced Cordless Technology Phones).

Many Advantages for Factories & Other Industrial Sites

The SpeakHear® range offers many great advantages, i.e. wearers can have full communication with colleagues despite wearing a pair of ear plugs. There are options that will allow them to hear conversations, warnings and alarms. They can also communicate with colleagues over radio or phone, whilst being fully protected.

If ProtectHear® hasn’t got your communication accessory in stock they will source them for you, subject to certain conditions. If the communication accessory required is outside of your budget ProtectHear® can offer a wide range of alternative comms solutions to accommodate your needs.
