WILLIAMS SOUND - Personal Hearing Assistance
: At Work
At Work : Whether for job training, consultation, or everyday work
conversations - hearing at the work place is critical for an employee
to be able to perform effectively on the job. To maximize an employee´s
ability to listen, Williams Sound recommends using an FM listening system
such as the Personal FM 350 or 300. The supervisor or trainer wears
a wireless transmitter and speaks into a microphone. The employee wears
a body-pack style receiver to pick up the supervisor´s message
to hear every word. The result: background noise is greatly reduced,
and the employee is able to listen to the message without distraction.
An FM system is also wireless, which allows the employee to move around
freely on the job without missing a word of important instruction.
Another simple way of improving listening in the workplace is for an employee
to utilize a Pocketalker. The Pocketalker is a small, compact portable listening
device with an external microphone. The microphone amplifies the closest
immediate sound source in a room, which greatly improves listening in one-on-one
conversations and small work groups. Background noise and distractions are
greatly reduced, which allows the employee to hear more clearly and effectively.
