Blackline launches gas detection communicator

Blackline Safety has introduced a work-anywhere, global employee safety monitoring system with total detection capability.

"Traditional gas detectors are 'disconnected' and only alert the worker of imminent danger," said Mr. Barry Moore, VP Product Development for Blackline Safety. "Businesses historically relied on workers to rescue themselves. Now, with G7, a team of responders is alerted in real-time to the employee's exact location. Knowing the concentration of hazardous gases around the individual, responders are protected while they rescue the employee from danger."

Highly configurable for every organisation, G7 warns both the user and live monitoring personnel of environmental exposure risks to both toxic and explosive gases. G7 is a true 'Internet of Things' tool, with wireless communications and location technology, to empower real-time emergency response and evacuation management.

"Blackline Safety is looking at the whole environment - hazards, gas concentrations, the exact location of a man down, and you can talk to him on the G7 speakerphone," commented Eric Clark, a member of the Area Safety Chairmen Committee for Ashland in Kentucky. "It saves a lot of time - the quicker you can get to that person in a dangerous situation the better chance they have of surviving."

G7 can automatically detect when someone is not moving, either from a fall, accident or health incident so that help can be immediately deployed to the employee. It can trigger evacuations with mass notifications while accounting for the location of every employee through to muster points and it supports customisation using interchangeable gas sensor cartridges with a choice of single or multiple gases (hydrogen sulfide, oxygen, combustible gases, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and ammonia).

Optional two-way voice communication enables monitoring personnel to speak directly with the employee through a built-in, industrial-grade speakerphone. G7 uses a combination of assisted-GPS and proprietary indoor location technology to display a fallen or injured employee's exact location on an interactive map, enabling monitoring personnel to direct the nearest responders to the right location.
