Yorkshire Water, a prominent water and sewerage company in the UK has placed a £1.1m order for Blackline Safety connected safety products and services, through Blackline’s distribution partner, Breathe Safety.

In the field and throughout facilities, Yorkshire Water personnel face the risk of environmental gas exposure to flammable, toxic and asphyxiating gases while delivering water services to over five million homes and a quarter of a million businesses. Under this order, Blackline will deliver its single and four-gas G7c detectors with integrated 3G wireless and a five-year G7 Insight service programme. Blackline-provided services include cloud-hosted software with automated configuration management, regulatory compliance tools and location-enabled data analytics.

Phil Stubley, Contract Manager at Yorkshire Water said, “We are really excited to roll out the Blackline G7c product across Yorkshire Water through our newly awarded contract with Breathe Safety.” Helen Keeling, Health and Safety Manager at Yorkshire Water added, “The Blackline G7c will replace our current fleet of monitors, and we are looking forward to the benefits and safety enhancements these new devices will bring as we develop a better understanding of our H2S issues,” “From our market research, Blackline are real industry leaders and have completely redesigned the way we think about gas monitoring.”

“To keep their field teams safe, Breathe Safety helped Yorkshire Water evaluate and approve the best safety monitoring technology available,” said Adam Moodie, General Manager at Breathe Safety. “By deploying Blackline’s G7c personal detector, Yorkshire Water will solve the regulatory compliance reporting challenge once and for all. With the G7 Insight programme, it’s easy to confirm that G7c devices are properly tested, calibrated and being used appropriately by personnel.”

“Blackline’s data analytics software provides Yorkshire Water with never-seen-before insights into their gas detection programme,” said Gavin Boorman, Managing Director at Blackline Safety Europe. “All data reported from employee-worn G7c gas monitors seamlessly uploads to the cloud-hosted Blackline Safety Network. Yorkshire Water can efficiently access and visualise data from every device in the field with help from over ten automatic reports. With a few clicks of their mouse, the Yorkshire health and safety team can see every calibration, plus they can map the location of every low-level gas reading in order to proactively plan appropriate actions.”

Future-proofing their investment, Blackline clients can add a range of real-time services to their G7 Insight connected safety programme such as a push-to-talk service that enables G7c detectors to operate as a walkie-talkie, real-time alerting and emergency response management tools, two-way voice calling with the live monitoring team and 24/7 live monitoring by Blackline’s Alarm Receiving Centre partners. Additionally these detectors are adaptable so specialised gas detection sensors can be deployed and an optional, built-in pump added.
