Hazardous area communication has come a long way in recent years, from the invention and use of the two-way radio to the modern day use of mobile phones, communication is now more effective than ever before. This has opened up a range of possibilities such as lone worker protection and near field communication to ensure increased safety for the mobile worker and improvements in efficiency for the organisation.
