Our award-winning technology enables you to protect your lone workers, no matter where they may be working.




Whether your teams are working indoors at large warehouse facilities, outdoors in complex construction sites, in remote locations or while driving to and from work—Blackline has developed and manufactured the perfect emergency response solutions for your lone workers. From crewmembers and operators, to supervisors and engineers, Blackline provides safety response systems for numerous industries, regardless of location.

Indoor Facilities

Manufacturing warehouses, correctional facilities, grain terminals, wastewater treatment and power plants can be some of the most dangerous places to work in the world—even taking your employees underground.

To get the job done, your teams work against the clock—often in noisy, fast-paced, high-risk and high-stress environments that require long hours where tasks often pull them out of sight and sound of others. These employees immediately become lone workers, isolated from their colleagues and risking their lives if an incident occurs.

Indoor Facilities

Outdoor Locations

Some of the most dangerous working conditions for your employees are outdoors. When they’re out of sight and sound from others, they instantly become lone workers. Conducting operations at construction sites, pump stations, camps and high voltage electrical sites can be hazardous.

Your employees work with unpredictable elements that require an utmost attention to detail. Working in isolation is common across multiple industries, and when work duties call lone workers away from their colleagues, lives are at risk if a safety accident, injury or physical assault occurs.

Outdoor Locations

Remote Locations

Some of the most dangerous jobs in the world are commonly located in the remote reaches of the planet where your employees often work alone and fulfill their duties where satellite coverage is the only way to communicate.

Working in solitude, far from their teams in hard-to-reach locales, your lone workers are isolated and face many challenging elements on a daily basis. With high voltage materials, blast-hole drills, pump-jacks, water reinjection plants, contaminated water, toxic chemicals and gases—your teams risk their lives everyday.

Remote Areas

Driving Scenarios

Operating large trucks and other heavy-duty vehicles for the transport of materials can be a dangerous job. Your lone workers put in long hours—often in high-risk environments that require an utmost attention to detail.

From crude oil haulers to big-rig truckers, lone drivers often travel for long periods of time on unpredictable terrain and risk fatigue or potentially falling asleep behind the wheel. This high-risk profession means your lone workers may be susceptible to accidents, injuries and health events.

Driving Scenarios


Many different lone worker roles contribute to your organization’s operations, manufacturing, logistics, research and development programs. Each employee role and activity is unique, and you need a lone worker monitoring solution that accommodates—rather than imposes on—your business.

Scenario One

The Scenario

Yesterday, an oilfield operator was testing well production in an area accessible by cellular communications. Today, the same work alone operator is required to check a remote, abandoned well that is not within cellular communications and is not accessible by truck. How can your company respond if he needs help?

The Solution

Blackline’s Loner Bridge System provides a universal solution that monitors lone workers anywhere using satellite positioning. Because it’s self-powered and portable, it can be moved from the employee’s truck to an ATV, enabling continuous monitoring to and from the shut-in well site.

Scenario Two

The Scenario

An electrician is working alone at an electrical utility substation and is called outside to respond to a power line that has been brought down by inclement weather. How could your organization know if she requires immediate help?

The Solution

Blackline’s Loner SMD provides real-time safety monitoring in the location where this electrician operates, enabling her to be found quickly, even if she’s working alone indoors. GPS provides precise positioning outdoors and Loner Beacons deliver seamless positioning when working indoors.

Scenario Three

The Scenario

A social worker is required to support clients throughout a large metropolitan area, which means a lot of driving and interaction with a broad demographic in many communities. How does your organization ensure this lone worker returns home at the end of the day?

The Solution

Blackline’s Loner Mobile smartphone app and Loner Duo Bluetooth® accessory provide real-time safety monitoring. Should an incident arise, monitoring personnel are able to listen in on what’s happening through two-way voice communications.

Cloud-hosted Safety Monitoring

All three scenarios are supported by Blackline’s Loner Portal web application and the availability of our in-house 24/7/365 Safety Operations Center. The configurability of our overall Loner solution family enables every location, employee role and application to be addressed in a consistent and manageable fashion.
