5 Industries In Newfoundland That Benefit From Two Way Radios

Newfoundlanders are known as salt of the earth people. Like the rest of Canadians, they are hard workers who will dedicate long hours to a task and to ensuring it gets done well – and right.

This is the essence of efficiency, and only part of what makes up the hardworking people across industries in Canada. In Newfoundland and Labrador, there are a variety of industries that contribute to the economy of the province – and continue to help it grow.

Part of that success comes from team communication in the workplace – which drives both efficiency and productivity in all industries. A key player in that team communication is often two way radios, which have been proven to drive results with teams across Canada.

Here’s a look at how two way radio technology has helped some of the core industries in Newfoundland, and how it could potentially help you:

Fisheries – This has long been a key part of the history of Newfoundland – and continues to be so today. The industry faces long, hard days in rugged working conditions – from every weather condition imaginable to 12 hour plus days of work. With two way radio technology, employees in fishery industries in Newfoundland and Labrador – from warehouse to offshore boats, have benefited from the communication radio technology have provided. This, in turn, keeps employees safe in an often stressful job – and in contact when it matters most.

Forestry – Safety is at the forefront of forestry – both in Newfoundland and beyond – and in all aspects of it. There is a huge benefit to two way radio technology in forestry because of its ability to allow teams to communicate in close quarters, or expansive distances. Often times, forestry work is done in remote locations, which is no factor for two way radios as they do not rely on cell phone towers to communicate. This allows team members consistent communication, and the ability to excel at productivity and safety.

Oil and Gas – Whether it’s offshore or on, these careers are the epitome of hard work and a true example of the need for two way radios. With the latest technology built for noisy work environments, and tough industries like oil and gas, Newfoundland users and beyond have benefited from the clear communication and intrinsically safe options available for oil and gas employees. And, if it’s getting bumped around or dropped, like a lot of equipment does in oil and gas, users can be guaranteed they can pick up where they left off with their conversation. A message doesn’t get missed with the right two way radios in place.

Mining – The remote locations of mining facilities, combined with the often underground work environments, are often no match for two way radio technology – they stand up to the pressures of mining, and have done so for years. This industry depends on two way radios to improve safety and increase productivity on a daily basis. And, with intrinsically safe options ensuring employees in the mining industry can work safely around the volatile products often produced with mining, two way radios ensure that people get home at night to their families.

Tourism – This is a growing industry in Newfoundland and Labrador, but it certainly doesn’t go without its needs for communication. From events to museums, and of course the hotels, restaurants and storefronts and beyond, a number of customer facing industries have benefited greatly from two way radio use. With consumers expecting more from their experience than ever, having two way radios in Newfoundland and beyond has enabled these industries to create a professional flow of information – saving time and money and, ultimately, leaving customers happy with their experience.

This is just a sample of the industries that make up the core of Newfoundland and Labrador. Among the other prominent industries are uses for two way radios as well, and we’ve had great success stories from the province from users of the technology.
