School Health & Safety
Instant communications is absolutely essential in the event of a medical incident or something more serious that requires immediate evacuation. Two way radios (or walkie talkies) almost certainly provide the correct solution.
Unlike a mobile phone, where there is a delay in the ring/answering period (up to a minute), two way radios make communication instant. That results in no time delay for incidents which are time critical such as fire alarms and evacuation.
Two way radios are recognised as the preferred method of instant communication by almost all health & safety recognised bodies and allow communication between all team members including all leadership, office, admin, cleaners ensuring effective communications between teams as required.

Two Way Radios for Teachers
Due to the nature of how schools operate, schools have an unusually high number of team members who work alone. Teachers who work with Children are still considered lone-workers. And as such every employer is ultimately responsible for the safety of the members of their team. Here’s some of the things which need to be considered.
- Risk of Violence
- Risk of Manual Handling
- Risk of Medical Incident
- Evacuation Procedure
Two way radios allow the teacher to effectively manage the risk and call for assistance without delay if an incident occurs.
Two Way Radios For School Trips
Two way radios are essential on school trips. When there’s a number of children and a limited number of grown ups, keeping track can be a tricky exercise. Using two way radios makes this much easier.
Typically, school trips are broken down with different groups doing different things. This means groups split up. Two way radios keep separate groups in touch.
But What’s The Range?
Typically, a two-way radio will give you up to a mile of coverage in open spaces (less in built-up areas). But plenty of coverage for almost all school requirements.
