Training Logistics & Distribution
As a Logistics & Distribution Training department, we provide various training courses in the field of mobile work equipment, machine operation, occupational health & safety and ‘code 95’ for drivers. Now that the measures are slowly but surely being relaxed, we are very enthusiastic that we can train our employees again. We also had to cancel the training sessions in the initial period (of Covid19), given the uncertainty of the virus. During this period we have not been idle, but we have designed our training, in such a way, that we can again provide the training sessions, according to the RIVM Covid-19 guidelines.
AXIWI – headsets for warehouse logistics
It is no longer possible to literally “look over the shoulder”, so we will have to use an alternative. We choose for the AXIWI AT-350 duplex communication system for warehouse logistics, after excellent service that Axitour Communication Solutions has offered us.
Our trainers provide clear instructions before training on social distancing and hygiene. During our training we use the wireless headsets for logistics of AXIWI and we can even control the 1.5-meter measure better. The students are asked to pay attention to each other and to remind each other of the agreed rules of conduct. In this way, with 4 students and 1 trainer, we can remain intelligible at all times, without having to shout!
Coach clearly “in the moment” from a distance
The AXIWI headsets are experienced as very positive among the trainees and trainers. Via an open line the trainer can effortlessly coach the trainees, remotely, in the moment. It is always very busy in our distribution centers, and due to the many automated roller tracks, this entails the necessary noise level. Due to the clear and clearly understandable audio through the AXIWI headsets for warehouse logistics, this brings a lot of relaxation to both trainer and trainee.
Train multiple groups at the same time
Because we sometimes train with several trainers at the same location, it is nice that it is possible that the receiver / senders headsets can be set to different channels. In addition, the system has a range of +/- 300 meters, so this also offers a solution on our outside areas (rain or sunshine). The quality of the sound is top notch and produces little or no noise.
Professionalization training distribution center
So even without the necessary Corona measures, the system provides a more professional training, where everyone feels heard. Next time too, we will definitely choose Axitour!
