Bouygues Construction has incorporated our Vokkero® Evo3 radio communication systems into the management of its equipment for safety and ergonomic reasons.
Management of a Bouygues Construction equipment depot (purchase, servicing, despatch to sites), involves a great deal of handling; handling carried out using forklifts or tower cranes (80% of the time depending on the work involved).
Teams (slingers, crane operators) must be able to communicate with each other easily during these handling operations.
But portable systems previously tested by Bouygues Construction were not satisfactory:
This led Bouygues Construction to look for an adequate communication system to fulfil a single objective: both hands free when handling equipment for safety reasons (ergonomics, 100% colleague attention during handling operations).
Full scale testing of the Vokkero® system was carried out during a week in outdoor and indoor environments, on a handling site comprising two cranes and a paint booth.
For Olivier Lancelevee, Operating Workshop Manager,"the results of these tests were very conclusive:
Finally the Vokkero® kits were purchased and will from now on be offered for hire on Bouygues Construction sites, initially for testing purposes and to define a standard kit for sites with a view to future deployment.
