Used for personnel working in paint booths, on-the-ground manufacturing as well as maintenance, repair and operations, Blackline’s new G7c is a combined safety monitoring and communications device. It continuously monitors the concentration of hazardous gases or fumes and — should an incident occur — immediately communicates the employee’s identity and location to Blackline’s live monitoring team in real-time. Blackline’s safety operations center follows the unique emergency protocol for each corporate client to manage alerts as they are received. Two-way voice calling, and a simple messaging interface enables monitoring agents to communicate directly with the employee to assess the situation and respond accordingly.
A new photoionization detector (PID) monitors volatile organic compounds including methyl propyl ketone, jet fuel and cleaning solvents such as acetone and isopropyl alcohol. Blackline’s single-gas and quad-gas cartridges will support a PID sensor, giving customers the choice to be equipped to detect anywhere from one through four different gases simultaneously.
“Our indoor location technology allows us to identify immediate health and safety risks to employees and communicate with them directly or send help to their exact location,” said Kirk Johnson, product manager for Blackline Safety. “All of our safety monitoring products connect to our industry leading cloud-hosted portal where customers can message employees, initiate voice calls, view usage trends and map their risks geospatially.”
