Calgary-based Blackline Safety Corp. has announced a 50 per cent increase in its fire-hazmat personal and area gas monitor business in the last year.
According to the company, this translates to more than $2 million in total contract value of Blackline’s safety devices and services, used by hundreds of fire and hazmat, oil and gas, petrochemical, food production, biotech, transportation, utilities, and water and wastewater organizations across North America, Europe, Middle East, Australia and New Zealand.
Doug Mayer, Blackline fire hazmat business development specialist, said in a statement that “Blackline’s No. 1 priority is helping organizations keep their employees and communities safe, and recognizing that every second counts in an emergency. We have reimagined safety solutions for various scenarios – from chemical spills and fires, to floods, gas leaks, explosions, and any other high-risk situation – by enabling organizations to respond with unprecedented speed, accuracy and as-it-happens visibility.”
Blackline’s G7 personal gas detectors and G7 EXO area gas monitors are built for extreme environments and include GPS-enabled location tracking. Supported by Blackline Live, the company’s cloud-connected monitoring and analytics platform, the technology enables organizations to view in real time all their workers’ locations and gas readings in the field, and configure their devices, from an Internet-connected smartphone, tablet or computer.
“With quick connectivity and real-time data continuously streaming to the command centre, decision makers can immediately understand the situation and risks, and confidently and quickly deploy potentially life-saving responses, including coordinating and communicating with stakeholders like local, state or federal agencies,” added Mayer.
The global workplace safety market is estimated to reach US$42.96 billion by 2032 with an annual growth rate of 11.8 per cent, according to Polaris Market Research.
