Major UK Water Utility Adopts Blackline Safety G7 to Protect Its Workforce

The third of 12 major water and sewerage authorities in the United Kingdom has awarded a USD 3.4M contract for Blackline Safety´s (TSX.V:BLN) G7c connected gas detection wearables with a five-year G7 Insight service plan, the company said.

G7c products and services will be deployed through Blackline´s authorized distributor, Breathe Safety.

To monitor the atmosphere for gas-based hazards, each G7c will be deployed with a cartridge featuring one, three or four gas sensors, including oxygen, ozone, chlorine and hydrogen sulphide. Automating regulatory compliance reporting, every gas reading, gas sensor bump test and calibration is automatically uploaded to the Blackline Safety Cloud for storage, reporting and visualization within Blackline Analytics software.

Every G7c wearable under this contract will also be field upgradeable, providing the option of real-time safety services for lone worker monitoring and productivity, including fall and no-motion detection, an SOS latch, two-way voice calling and messaging, 24/7 live monitoring and push-to-talk that turns G7c into a walkie-talkie.
