February 9, 2024

Blackline Safety wins over competitor for a significant deal

Blackline Safety Corp. known for its pioneering connected safety technology, has been chosen by a prominent US upstream energy company based in Houston, Texas, for a four-year agreement worth $2.7 million.

This partnership will see Blackline providing over 800 G7c cloud-connected wearable safety devices, 40 EXO cloud-connected area monitors, and 75 G7 Docks, marking a significant shift from the energy company’s previous supplier of 30 years.

The decision to transition to Blackline’s products stemmed from the company’s commitment to enhancing worker safety, particularly for those working in isolation, by offering reliable cellular connectivity across extensive geographic regions.

Blackline’s comprehensive features, including the SOS latch, fall and no-motion detection, push-to-talk, and real-time connectivity, were key factors in the selection process.

Features and technology that set Blackline apart

Sean Stinson, President and Chief Growth Officer at Blackline Safety, shared insights into the selection process: “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.”

Stinson also highlighted the unique attributes of the EXO area monitor, which is designed to monitor rigs, tank batteries, and wellsites during repair and maintenance operations without the need for power, Wi-Fi, or infrastructure, making its drop-and-go setup a critical solution for the energy company.

Impact on worker safety and industry standards

Blackline’s G7 personal gas detectors and EXO area gas monitors are engineered for extreme conditions and come with location-enabled technology, offering multiple layers of protection to ensure a critical lifeline during emergencies.

The G7 Dock facilitates easy calibration, bump testing, and charging of G7 devices, eliminating the need for complex ethernet or Wi-Fi connections.

This significant contract underscores the growing demand for reliable, integrated connected safety solutions for lone workers, gas detection, and area monitoring, aiming to enhance protection for over 800 workers.

Stinson concluded: “We unseat the competition because Blackline products set the standard for the safest lone worker solution on the market.

“We’ve innovated a stagnant industry and elevated the bar to keep workers safer than they have ever been.”
