 Factory and Site Safety

Health and safety legislation places a duty of care on everyone in the workplace to ensure adequate precautions are taken to prevent accidents.


Appropriate use of talking sounders can be used to demonstrate that adequacy.

Whether it is a conveyor or assembly track about to start or a machine without a safety guard in place, the potential for accidents in industry are endless.


Whilst there is a clear need to warn personnel of hazards or impending danger, the plethora of conventional warning sounders and flashing lights often causes confusion and any delay in response can be fatal.


The use of a verbal warning system can ensure that the precise nature of a situation is instantly communicated and an appropriate response is generated immediately.


It really can mean the difference between life and death.


Requiring only a low voltage supply and a means of switching, the system is flexible for use on machinery, vehicles such as forklifts, automatic doors, overhead cranes and entry to hazardous areas.


Message triggering may be from a panic button, proximity sensor, industrial process or plant movement, to name but a few.


The wording of the message may be tailored to the exact nature of each application and the system is easily incorporated into control panels or used as stand-alone units.


Warning messages may also be reproduced in multiple languages for the sake of safety as well as “political correctness”.

Factory and Site Safety is critical
