Many employees work remotely in this global age. Especially when it comes to working in oil and gas, there are lots of remote spots and isolated areas where there are rigs that need maintenance. Sending a whole fleet of people out to these remote places does not make much sense if only one person is needed to do the job. When this happens, questions of communication and safety often arise. When working so far off the grid it can be dangerous to not be able to communicate with anyone. Working with oil and gas equipment can be dangerous and things can and do occasionally go wrong. Will your employees be able to call for assistance if they need to? Or what if they need advice during their maintenance assessments? It is not at all operationally efficient to drive all the way back to a place that has full cellular coverage just to ask a few questions.
