Mar 28 2018
At the 6th annual Oil & Gas Awards, Texas Region gala, an independent panel of judges named Blackline Safety Corp. as the Manufacturer of the Year, highlighting the recent impact of its leading connected worker safety monitoring solutions on the energy sector.
The Manufacturer of The Year Award recognises the outstanding contribution that a manufacturer has made to industry. To be eligible for this category, manufacturers must demonstrate adoption of its products and services by clients in the region.
Industry leaders including Nabors, Total Safety, U.S. Well Services, Williams and Select Energy Services sponsored the event while the judging panel included members from BHP Billiton, Marathon Oil, Texas A&M and Statoil, among others. Recognizing Blackline’s contribution to the industry, comments from the judges included: “Handheld gas detection is not necessarily something new, but wireless safety monitoring, which live reports any issues - including injury, health event, gas leak or security threat - to a 24/7 operations centre … is going to revolutionise many companies’ health and safety monitoring.” “They may be a new name, but you just have to look at the history of the CEO to know they will be sticking around.”
“Our team at Blackline appreciates the recognition from the judges at the Oil & Gas Awards,” said Cody Slater, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Blackline Safety. “We take very seriously our ability to save a life with help from our real-time wireless gas detection and lone worker monitoring solutions.
