Intercounty Communicates Clearly with Wireless Headsets
BY John Ball
During the summer of 2020, I consulted with a company that had purchased a set of wireless headsets for the paving crew. The paver operator, both screed operators, the roller operator, lute artist and I each wore a headset for the successful performance of a parking lot job while I instructed and assisted them.
What was unique about this is I was on the paver most of the time, yet I could direct the ground workers easily by speaking into the wireless system. I could talk in a normal voice, keeping a calm workday with no yelling for mix or equipment movement. It was so much easier to get the job done correctly when the members of the crew were able to hear one another without raised voices trying to shout over equipment engine noise. The pictures tell the story of a top quality job.
