Graham, Ops Director
I am the Operations Director for a business that runs at an extremely busy airport, re-fuelling planes. My colleagues have to be at the right place at the right time, always working in areas where there is a lot of background noise and large vehicles moving around. Whilst we have an enormous amount of safety protocols, I am always concerned that a colleague may have an accident that we don’t know about and can’t get to them as quickly as we could.
The Twig One ATEX certainly helps alleviate these concerns. It simply sits comfortably on their overalls and they simply push a button to confirm they are safe and well. If they don’t, I know an alarm will be raised, and we can use the in-built GPS feature to locate them. The fall alert and panic alarm also give me peace of mind that we will be notified immediately if there is ever an incident or an accident. The volume of the Twig One ATEX is loud enough that it can be heard even through the ear defenders that we have to wear.
My Ops team also have an additional benefit. The GPS is recorded on the O.W.L and we have been able to utilise the geo-fence function to plot each of the parking bays for the aircraft, so we always know which aircraft and bay we are currently servicing without having to contact the operative.
