Making difficult and dangerous projects safer and more efficient

Construction sites, tunnels and bridges, motorways and open cast mines are among the most challenging environments to work in.

Vertex Standard understands your communication challenges and offers a range of two-way radios that help you create a safer and connected work site.
Communication Challenges
Rough Site Conditions
Read more
The scale, hazardous and rugged conditions of a construction or mining site affect audio quality and efficiency of communication transmission.
Lone Worker Environment
Read more
Workers may be operating alone in isolated areas in a massive site. An incapacitated worker will need quick response to calls for help and access to emergency aids, which may be hindered by distance and physical barriers.
Noise Level
Read more
Heavy industrial machines used in a construction or mining environment may create noise that obstruct smooth transmission of messages between inviduals or groups, leading to delay in communication or miscommunication.
Long Hours
Read more
Besides gruelling work condition, workers may be subjected to long working hours which can be a risk factor especially during incidence of natural diasters or accidents. This makes it even more paramount for workers to stay connected via a reliable communication network with their co-workers at all times, even beyond the standard working hours.
Need for Rapid Safety and Emergency Response
Read more
Dangers and security threats lurk in every corner and situation – more so in construction and mining environment. Barriers prohibiting rapid reaction to safety and emergency incidents include physical and natural environments, as well as the choice of communication devices deployed.
Private/ Group Communication
Read more
A common desire amongst analog radio users is to control who receives a message and avoid broadcasting messages to a wide group of listeners to avoid miscommunication. Digital two-way radio technology not only faciliates individual and group communication but also addresses problem of overcrowded frequencies that can impact call quality and reliability, putting safety and productivity at risk.

In the first three months of 2017, five miners died in accidents that occurred when they were working alone on mine property. To raise awareness of the potential dangers in doing so, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Mine Safety and Health Administration has launched an initiative to focus on the hazards miners may encounter when they work in areas away from others.1

Fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction employees, accounting for 350 of the 937 construction fatalities recorded in 2015 (BLS data). Those deaths were preventable.1

How Vertex Standard Radios Can Help

Protecting Workers, Preserving Budgets

Coordinating operations between workers brings enhanced safety and less accidents – a vital precondition for delivering projects on time and within budget. Signal coverage can be poor, noise high and the possibility of accidents very real. With wide open spaces, complex buildings and specialist equipment such as diggers and cranes, coordinating personnel and services is crucial for safe project delivery.

Vertex Standard offers Instrinsically Safe two-way radio models that are SGS certified to the requirements of ANSI/UL913 5th Edition for use in Class I, II, III, Division I; Groups C,D,E,F,G; Temp T3C hazardous locations. Our two-way radios also facilitate loud and clear audio, precision-engineered to ensure reliable communications on site with ease and peace of mind.

VX-450 Series

The industrial grade VX-450 Intrinsically Safe series maximises worker uptime with expanded safety applications and convenient built-in features designed for heavy duty use.

Key Product Features

Monitor Worker Safety
Read more

Emergency alert can be programmed to instantly notify help with a press of a button. Monitor lone workers in isolated areas with the "Lone worker" button — an ideal solution for supervisors to monitor the safety status of radio users working alone. When constant contact is required at all times, Vertex Standard's exclusive Auto-Range Transpond System (ARTS™) is included to inform the user that other ARTS™-equipped radios are within communication range. Assist workers to call for help even if they are incapacitated with the "Man Down" function.
