Proper Radio Communication on Construction Sites

Demolition Project - Radio Communication in Construction

Communication is key, is a popular saying that is especially fitting on a construction, rigging, or demolition job-site. Radio communication is an important tool that helps team members work more safely and efficiently, but in order to be effective, workers must be trained on the proper use of radios. All R. Baker & Son demolition team members, riggers and millwrights receive training and Toolbox Talks on radio communication. 

Here are some of the keys to good radio communication in construction, rigging and demolition:

 

 

  1. Use quality radio equipment with a strong signal and have spare radios on hand.

  2. Radios should be tested prior to use for clearness and proper operation. 

  3. Make sure all workers have been trained on how to properly use the radio equipment and basic communication etiquette and protocol, such as: 

    • Identify yourself when initiating transmission.

    • Pause a second or two before speaking as there may be a delay.

    • Speak in short, clear, concise messages.

    • Release the talk button when done speaking.

    • Be patient and allow time for the message recipient to respond.

    • Utilize radio lingo for clear messaging, such as “over”, “do you copy” and “copy”, “go ahead”, “stand by”, “say again”, “roger”, and “out”. 

  4. Radios should only be used for communication regarding the job at hand and should never be used for personal communication. 

  5. Radios should be turned in at the end of each work day for charging. 

  6. Make sure users are on the proper channel to communicate with team members. 

  7. Crane operator radios should be equipped with a hands-free system.
