North American Energy Company invests $3.5 on connected safety technology to Protect over 850 employees

Oct 05 2023

To improve workplace safety for its workforce, a prominent North American energy company has invested $3.5 million in state-of-the-art connected safety technology from Blackline Safety Corp.

This significant initiative will see Blackline Safety providing more than 850 G7x cloud-connected wearable safety devices to the energy company's employees. These devices will prove invaluable for workers who frequently operate in remote and confined spaces within hazardous environments. The decision to issue these devices bears testament to the energy company's firm commitment to employee safety. Understanding the value of seamless connectivity in remote areas, the company has also procured over 850 G7 Bridges from Blackline Safety. These portable base stations act as crucial satellite uplinks, enabling uninterrupted communication in areas with poor connectivity. This investment has not only improved levels of worker safety but also operational efficiency in remote locations. In addition, the energy company has acquired more than 230 G7 Docks to further streamline safety operations and compliance. These docks provide a user-friendly solution for calibrating, bump testing, and charging G7 wearable devices. This addition underscores the company's dedication to maintaining the highest safety standards for its workforce.

A pilot project was initially conducted using Blackline Safety's technology at a single site. The real-time connectivity of the G7 devices, as well as the comprehensive insights provided by Blackline Analytics, made quite an impression. Sean Stinson, Blackline Safety’s President and Chief Growth Officer, commented, "The fact that our technology can tell them immediately when and where someone needs help—even in confined spaces and remote locations with no cellular signal—sealed the deal. The company is now standardising on a fleet of Blackline devices to protect their workers across North America, "

The deal marks the third major agreement announced by Blackline Safety this month, The other significant deals, from the fire hazmat and Middle East energy industries, also highlighted the considerable role of Blackline's real-time connectivity in winning these contracts.

Sean Stinson contemplated the increasing use of connected gas detection and lone worker technology, saying, “We’re thrilled that more and more companies are embracing the value of connected gas detection and lone worker technology. These organisations are prioritising their workers’ safety by giving them the confidence to get the job done and return home safe at the end of their day. With Blackline’s all-in-one solutions, they can provide their workers that security and optimise operations at the same time
