Optimise your field operations with real time data and voice collaboration

The chemical industry is an essential sector that faces significant safety risks in its daily operations, from handling hazardous materials to managing complex manufacturing processes. These risks can impact workers, communities, and the environment, making safety management and joined-up communication crucial for chemical companies.

To overcome these challenges, chemical companies are turning to Airacom’s range of safety-focused solutions. With intrinsically safe mobile devices, advanced telematics, and unified communications (UCaaS), chemical companies can ensure safety compliance while improving efficiency and productivity across the organisation. The combination of our unified communications portfolio of voice and data services means chemical companies can streamline communication, collaborate with frontline workers in real time, and access critical data in hazardous environments. By investing in safety and collaboration-focused enterprise mobility, chemical companies can protect their employees and the environment while driving greater operational oversight and business growth.

Chemical industry Challenges


The chemical industry is vital in producing materials used in a wide range of applications, from pharmaceuticals to plastics and fertilizers. However, the industry is not without risks, especially handling hazardous materials, which presents a significant safety risk that must be managed. Airacom provides comprehensive solutions, from critical communication to real time location monitoring, enabling chemical companies to identify and mitigate risks, protect lone workers, and enhance team management. With our range of solutions, companies can ensure the safety and security of their workers, communities, and environment.


Chemical companies face numerous compliance challenges, including stringent environmental, health and safety regulations, and product safety requirements. They must comply with a range of regulatory frameworks such as REACH, OSHA, and GHS to ensure safety and protect the environment. Non-compliance can result in penalties, legal liability, and reputational damage. To address these challenges, chemical companies must invest in robust compliance programs, regular monitoring, and reporting, as well as effective risk management strategies to ensure compliance and minimise the risk of incidents.


Chemical companies encounter communication and collaboration challenges due to their hazardous and complex operations. Cloud-based collaboration tools, mobile applications, rugged devices, and video conferencing can assist in resolving such issues. IoT-enabled tracking systems offer real-time visibility of assets and personnel, improving safety and collaboration. These tools ensure efficient communication and collaboration across teams, regardless of their location. Investing in these tools can boost operational efficiency and enhance safety while enhancing communication and collaboration abilities.


Cybersecurity is paramount in the chemical industry, which is an attractive target for cyberattacks due to the potential for financial gain and disruption of operations. Airacom’s mobile threat defence solutions provide real-time protection against cyber threats, malware, and phishing attacks. Our comprehensive cybersecurity solutions, combined with critical communications and workforce management solutions, enable chemical companies to operate safely and securely, reducing the risk of security breaches and reputational damage.


Streamline operations, reduce costs, and enhance safety with push to talk

In the chemical industry, push-to-talk (PTT) technology has become an essential tool for effective communication between workers. With PTT, workers can communicate instantly and efficiently, making it an ideal solution for companies that need to coordinate work across large facilities or in hazardous environments.

Increased Efficiency: PTT enables workers to promptly alert their colleagues and coordinate a response in the event of an emergency, or critical incident. Push-to-talk technology can also be a vital line of instant collaboration between teams and departments.

Cost Effective: Airacom PoC is an efficient and cost-effective alternative to traditional two way radio communication. Instead of using multiple devices (smartphone and radio), PTT allows workers to communicate using a single device, which is more convenient and cost-effective to manage

Wide Area Communications: Operating over any 2G, 3G, 4G, LTE, 5G, WiFi or Satellite public or private network, Airacom push to talk offers chemical companies ultra-wide area voice and messaging communications with limited infrastructure required.

From on-premise PBX to UCaaS, the future of communication in the chemical industry

Transform communication in the chemical industry with UCaaS and leverage Microsoft Teams Direct Routing and Operator Connect for Teams to ensure your workforce remains connected and productive through real-time collaboration and mobile messaging. Benefit from the power of cutting-edge communication technology to revolutionise your workflows and enhance operational efficiency while maintaining compliance, high levels of security and regulatory compliance.

Cloud-Hosted Security: The shift to cloud-hosted UCaaS is providing chemical companies with significant advantages in terms of security. UCaaS solutions are designed with comprehensive security measures built-in, such as multi-factor authentication, end-to-end encryption, and data backups. Cloud solutions also offer more scalability and flexibility compared to on-premise PBX systems, enabling companies to adjust their resources as needed. With cloud-hosted UCaaS, companies can reduce their overall infrastructure costs and minimise downtime caused by hardware issues, making it an appealing solution for companies looking to optimise their communication systems while ensuring security.

Teams Direct Routing: Give your Microsoft Teams a voice with Direct Routing and make Teams more than just an internal collaboration platform with full PSTN break out enabling your team to take inbound and outbound calls within Teams on any device wherever they work.
