Utility Company Orders Blackline Lone Worker Safety Solution
CALGARY, ALBERTA–(Marketwired – July 7, 2014) – A prominent electrical utility company located in Western Canada has provided Blackline GPS (“Blackline” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:BLN) with a purchase order for the Company’s new Loner® Bridge System that provides employee safety monitoring capability to remote locations that are beyond the reach of cellular networks. Totaling over $825,000 CAD, deliveries of products will begin in fiscal Q4 of this year with service delivered over a two-year period from the time of product activation.
“Working in remote locations where cellular networks are not available presents a heightened level of risk for personnel,” says Clark Swanson, President of Blackline GPS. “This order underlines the effectiveness of our new Loner Bridge System in addressing this challenge – even enabling employees to be monitored inside field facilities.”
Blackline’s award-winning Loner suite of safety monitoring products enables employers to monitor the safety of personnel with a combination of automatic and manual safety alerting features including True Fall Detection®, person-down detection, missed check-in detection, an emergency latch, and silent emergency button. When safety incidents occur, Loner safety monitoring devices communicate the employee’s identity and precise location to monitoring personnel who are empowered to manage an efficient, pinpoint emergency response. Blackline’s technology has the capability to improve the outcome of employees who have suffered an injury, health incident, or physical assault.
