Canada's Blackline Safety Corp in collaboration with its distributor, Brogan Safety Supply, received a 36-month lease order from an energy producer in Canada valued at $1.9M over the term. Under this order, Blackline delivered its G7x connected gas detector and lone worker monitor, plus its G7 Bridge portable satellite base station. G7x devices were configured with 24/7 Blackline live monitoring and a typical four-gas configuration that includes hydrogen sulfide, combustible gas, oxygen and carbon monoxide sensors.

“We successfully converged our customer’s requirements for leading gas detection equipment with reliable lone worker monitoring technology into a single G7 solution from Blackline,” said Marc Chayer, Branch Manager, Whitecourt at Brogan Safety. “By providing both capabilities as a lease program with no upfront fees, we delivered a new level of value to our customer while positioning ourselves as a distributor of choice in our region.”

“Many of our competitors talk about real-time safety but only Blackline offers a portfolio where connectivity forms the foundation of every component,” said Cody Slater, CEO and Chairman at Blackline Safety. “Each order that we receive is connected safety business that our competitors have lost. With a decade of real-time safety experience behind every G7 device we sell, our recent growth confirms the leadership of our safety products and services.”

Blackline’s three-year G7 Complete lease program provides a range of service options, including choice of gas sensors from single-gas through to five-gas configurations, automated lone worker monitoring including fall detection, man-down (no-motion) detection and missed check-in detection and a lifetime G7 device and gas sensor warranty. Blackline offer further support to their customers with their live cloud-hosted web software for configuration and emergency response management, live gas detection compliance dashboard that eliminates manual data collection, review and reporting and second-generation data analytics that makes it easy to visualise and explore ‘big data’ generated by every G7x. Participants in the G7 program have even more peace of mind thanks to Blackline’s 24/7 live monitoring provided by their in-house Safety Operations Center, which offers two-way messaging with the live monitoring team, two-way voice calling with the live monitoring team (G7c cellular-connected device only) and automatic, wireless firmware updates and device configuration changes

Blackline’s G7x system is the only comprehensive, satellite-connected safety monitoring solution on the market with plug-and-play cartridges for robust gas detection capability. Everything works out of the box so businesses do not need Wi-Fi access points, wireless gateways or Bluetooth connections to smartphones for advanced connectivity. Wirelessly communicating with the Blackline Safety Network through Iridium satellite communications, Blackline’s G7x system addresses customer needs for gas detection, regulatory compliance and lone worker monitoring with live emergency response management.
