Blackline Safety

Major investment for Houston company

Blackline Safety Corp., a connected safety technology company based in Calgary, just announced a four-year contract valued at $2.7 million with a major U.S. upstream energy company headquartered in Houston, Texas.

The unnamed company selected Blackline to provide over 800 G7c cloud-connected wearable safety devices, 40 EXO cloud-connected area monitors, and 75 G7 Docks, per a February 8 Blackline press release sent to EA. This new fleet "marks a shift away from a competitor’s products, which the company had used for 30 years," Blackline added.

The decision to upgrade was driven by the company’s dedication to safety and need to better protect their workers—especially those working alone—by ensuring cellular coverage across a large geographic area. Ultimately, features such as SOS latch, fall and no motion detection, push-to-talk, and real-time connectivity were big incentives for the deal, according to Blackline.

“The customer evaluated Blackline’s connected safety devices in comparison to products from their long-term supplier. It took less than a week for G7c to stand out for its broad connectivity range, and the ability to see where their lone workers might be in imminent danger so they can make sure their people are safe,” said Sean Stinson, President and Chief Growth Officer, Blackline Safety.
“The company was also impressed with the EXO area monitor’s ability to monitor rigs, tank batteries, and wellsites during repair and maintenance operations. With no power, Wi-Fi, or infrastructure requirements, EXO’s drop-and-go setup is exactly what they were looking for,” Stinson added.

Blackline’s award-winning G7 personal gas detectors and EXO area gas monitors—built for extreme conditions, with location-enabled technology—provide layers of protection to ensure a critical lifeline during an emergency. G7 Dock is Blackline’s simple solution to calibrating, bump testing and charging G7 devices without any complicated ethernet or Wi-Fi connection requirements.

"This new deal provides protection for over 800 workers so they have the confidence to do their job and get home safe at the end of their day," the press release states. "The multiyear contract demonstrates that companies are looking for reliable, all-in-one connected safety solutions for lone workers, gas detection, and area monitoring to better protect their workers."
