Blackline Safety Corp‘s G6 single-gas detector has been recognised for its innovative product design by Red Dot, as well as for outstanding product development in the area of industrial hygiene by Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S).

“The Red Dot award validates the user-centred approach we took when collaborating on G6’s development with our design partner, Advanta Design,” said Phil Benson, Vice President, Product Design & Data Analytics at Blackline Safety.

“We kept HSE workers and their real-world tasks in mind through every step of the design process.” Based in Germany, the Red Dot Award, is a globally recognized symbol of product design excellence. The company previously won a Red Dot Award in 2017 for its G7 product.

G6 has also been recognised for outstanding product development in the Gas and Vapor Monitoring category by OH&S through its 2023 Industrial Hygiene Awards. This is the ninth time in 10 years Blackline Safety has been awarded for its new product innovations by OH&S.

About the G6

Unveiled in late 2022, G6 is a fully connected and intuitive connected single-gas detector that leverages instant cloud connectivity and integrated location technology to help organizations quickly respond to incidents. Over time, data from G6 usage helps organizations get ahead of possible safety risks by leveraging visuals of high alarm rates and low compliance, as well as data insights from its analytics platform.

“With this new technology, we’re bringing unprecedented levels of connectivity to industrial workplaces, helping to reduce the risk of injury, and bring proactive safety management to a new level,” said Cody Slater, CEO and Chair, Blackline Safety.

“We’re responding to a direct need in the market, giving safety managers higher performing technology to access reliable, actionable data at their fingertips.”

G6 also delivers a full-year battery life and fewer false alarms. It also gives safety professionals access to the trusted data they need to manage their safety protocols, processes, and ongoing compliance more effectively and efficiently.

“We are honoured that G6 is receiving international attention for product design and innovation,” said Slater. “Our game-changing technology is revolutionizing an industry that hasn’t changed in decades—and we continue to innovate and improve as part of our vison to transform the industrial workplace through technology.”
