The Sena Tufftalk utilizes advanced wireless technologies to help keep you safe, without harming your efficiency.

If you know Sena from the motorcycle realm, you would most likely be surprised to know that the company actually got its start in industrial technology. In 1998 Sena began creating industrial communication solutions. Sena’s CEO who was, and is, an avid motorcyclist brought his company’s proven Bluetooth communication technology to the motorcycle space in 2010. Fast forward to 2017 and Sena has brought another game-changing device to the industrial communication and construction world. Meet Tufftalk, the construction Bluetooth headset you've been waiting for.


Construction Site Dangers

Working in construction is no easy feat. The day-to-day is always changing and workers must always be on their toes when working in potentially dangerous sites. According to The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, one in ten construction workers are injured every single year. No matter what type of construction you might work in there are always dangers presenting themselves, whether it’s falling from a ladder, or the danger of oncoming traffic with roadside construction jobs.

Improving Safety

This is where one of the best Bluetooth headsets for construction workers comes into play. Tufftalk is an earmuff Bluetooth communication and intercom headset. Tufftalk is packed with features to make communicating on the job a breeze. Up to 4 Tufftalk headsets can pair to each other and communicate vis built in intercom. Sena has engineered Advanced Noise Control™ technology allowing for users to talk freely while the headset filters out any background noise on the job site. Tufftalk also has the ability to pair to two-way radios, creating an all in one earmuff radio and the perfect headphones for construction workers. Bluetooth 4.1 allows for a smartphone to be paired so that users can listen to music, and even take and make phone calls.

Protecting Your Hearing

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says that the number of workers with occupational noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is soaring in recent years partly due to the fact that workers are simply not caring to protect their ears in noisy work environments. Once hearing impairment begins it is almost always impossible to reverse, that’s why it is imperative to protect your ears on the job! The Tufftalk Bluetooth construction headphones help to dull loud, distracting noises for optimum comfort as well as providing the necessary protection from permanent damage to your hearing, making it the ideal solution for noisy work environments. Important external sounds can also be amplified using the Ambient Mode feature to increase the awareness of your surroundings and hear unexpected sounds or calls for help, while still protected through the 24 dB audio attenuation. For further protection needs, the Tufftalk Bluetooth construction headphones also come in a Hard Hat option for more active work environments.

Communication is Key

The ability to communicate on the jobsite is vital for productivity and getting the job done, and done right. When communication is absent there is much more room for accidents and mistakes to be made. Thanks for reading this edition of the Sena blog!
