Jensen Steel Fabricators was formed in 1987 by Greg and Robyn Jensen. Over the years, the experienced and committed team at Jensen Steel have developed strong relationships with many of New Zealand’s leading construction companies and key manufacturers. Jensen Steel has completed a range of projects across New Zealand.
Jensen Steel originally had PRS radios on-site, however, not everyone was using them due to their unreliability. Jensen Steel wanted to improve the quality and quantity of communication between yard staff to improve safety. They sought new portable radios that would increase communications and safety, and be user-friendly.
Local Tait dealer Mobile Systems supplied Jensen Steel with a fleet of Tait TP3 portable radios. These radios were chosen for their value for money, variation of colours, and compact portable size. They also appreciated the variety of accessories, fit for user requirements.
Jensen Steel uses different coloured covers on the radios for different staff divisions, making them easy to identify at the start of each day. All the radios start up with the Jensen Steel logo on screen for professionalism.
An announcement channel has been programmed in all radios so management can broadcast and ensure important messages are heard by everyone.
The Tait TP3 radios have been well received by staff at Jensen Steel. Clear communications through the radios have made tasks such as spotting loads in and out of workshops and loading trucks much easier and safer.
Worker safety has been improved due to the increased quality and quantity of audio communications, and the ergonomic and user-friendly design of the radios.
