With recent Government announcements prompting a return to work for industries such as Construction and Manufacturing, many businesses are now looking to implement strategies that will allow staff to carry out their job role safely.

Two-way radios have been recognised within government plans as a viable measure in reducing unnecessary movement within buildings and sites, an important step in maintaining social distancing.   

Taking a proactive approach to ensuring the safety of their team; leading home improvement retailer Screwfix, approached Radio Solutions to help with creating a 'Covid Secure' working environment. After understanding their requirements Radio Solutions supplied 700 XT180 twin packs which have been used nationally across all of their stores. Specifically the radios have been utilised to keep staff safe by preventing customers from entering the shop and instead communicating with backroom staff who bring the goods to a safe front desk area where a 2m distance can be maintained.
