TURIN, ITALY--(Marketwired - May 20, 2015) - EcoSafe S.r.l., a prominent health and safety distributor in Italy has signed an agreement and placed a stocking order with Blackline GPS Europe Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Blackline GPS Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BLN). EcoSafe will be promoting Blackline's Loner® portfolio of lone worker safety monitoring solutions throughout the Italian region. In 2014, Italy enacted legislation that allows organizations of all sizes to apply for reductions in national insurance for employees, based upon implemented health and safety programs.
"We see a great market for Blackline's lone worker monitoring solutions that can impact every organization's bottom line, each year," says Dario Andreis, Sales & Marketing Manager at EcoSafe. "All Italian employers that deploy lone worker solutions earn nearly half the points required for a maximum employee insurance discount."
"Italy has taken a very positive step forward in the landscape of lone worker legislation, offering companies an incentive to deploy safety monitoring solutions," says Gavin Boorman, Managing Director, Blackline GPS Europe. "During an incident, Blackline's employee safety monitoring solutions can make the difference between life and death, recovery and permanent disability, and quick assistance versus needless suffering."
Loner® safety monitoring solutions are designed to improve the outcome of an employee who has suffered a workplace injury, health event, or physical assault. Incorporating real-time communication and multiple location technologies, Blackline's products help employers manage an efficient emergency response to a worker's precise location. No matter where an employee is located-within buildings, populated areas, or the remote reaches of our planet, Blackline provides a complete suite of employee safety monitoring solution to match the challenge.
