TAKE A LOOK AT THIS NEW BDS DISPATCH SYSTEM
Take a look at the work area for a dispatcher with the new system.
There are SEVEN computer screens that ONE dispatcher must monitor.
My understanding is that each dispatcher has TWO headsets on, one in each ear.
How is this sort of system efficient and safe?
