Blackline Safety Corp. has emerged victorious in a fierce competition, clinching a four-year, $2.7 million deal with a major U.S. upstream energy company headquartered in Houston, Texas. This groundbreaking contract marks a paradigm shift away from a decades-long partnership with a competitor, underlining the pivotal role played by Blackline’s innovative connected safety technology.
For 30 years, the U.S. energy company relied on products from a competitor to ensure the safety of its workforce. However, the company’s unwavering commitment to safety, particularly for lone workers operating in expansive geographic areas, prompted a reevaluation of their safety solutions.
The decision to transition to Blackline Safety was driven by a strategic need to provide consistent, reliable cellular coverage and enhance worker safety. Blackline’s G7c cloud-connected wearable safety devices, equipped with features such as SOS latch, fall, and no-motion detection, push-to-talk, and real-time connectivity, played a pivotal role in swaying the decision in their favor.
Sean Stinson, President and Chief Growth Officer at Blackline Safety, emphasized, “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 ensure the safety of lone workers in imminent danger.”
In addition to the G7c devices, the energy company was impressed with Blackline’s EXO cloud-connected area monitors. These devices offer a drop-and-go setup, requiring no power, Wi-Fi, or infrastructure. The EXO area monitors proved invaluable in monitoring rigs, tank batteries, and well sites during repair and maintenance operations, showcasing their versatility in extreme conditions.
Blackline’s G7 Dock, a simple solution for calibrating, bump testing, and charging G7 devices without complex ethernet or Wi-Fi connection requirements, further bolstered the company’s commitment to providing an all-in-one connected safety solution. This comprehensive safety ecosystem, coupled with award-winning G7 personal gas detectors, ensures layers of protection for workers in emergency situations.
This transformative contract secures protection for over 800 workers, instilling confidence in them to carry out their duties with the assurance of returning home safely. The multiyear commitment underscores the growing trend among companies seeking reliable, all-encompassing connected safety solutions for lone workers, gas detection, and area monitoring to prioritize worker well-being.
Sean Stinson proudly stated, “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.”
About Blackline Safety, Stinson highlighted their role as a technology leader driving innovation in the industrial workforce through the Internet of Things (IoT). With connected safety devices and predictive analytics, Blackline empowers companies to strive towards zero safety incidents and enhanced operational performance.
Armed with cellular and satellite connectivity, Blackline serves as a lifeline to tens of thousands of individuals. They have reported over 225 billion data points and initiated over seven million emergency alerts, solidifying their position as a force to be reckoned with in the realm of connected safety technology.
