Calgary’s Blackline Safety sees 50% growth in fire-hazmat business

Calgary-based Blackline Safety has reported a notable 50% increase in its fire-hazmat personal and area gas monitor business over the past year.

This marks an impressive rise, resulting in a total contract value exceeding $2 million.

Cutting-edge technology propels growth

The significant growth is attributed to Blackline Safety’s pioneering product capabilities in the realm of safety technology.

Doug Mayer, the firm’s Fire Hazmat Business Development Specialist, commented: “Blackline’s top priority is ensuring the safety of both organisations and communities.

“Understanding the critical nature of emergencies, our focus has been on offering rapid, accurate, and transparent safety solutions.”

Blackline Safety’s G7 personal gas detectors and G7 EXO area gas monitors stand out with features such as GPS-enabled location tracking, providing an essential layer of safety during crises.

Combined with the company’s cloud-based monitoring and analytics platform, Blackline Live, organisations can access real-time data about their workers and their environments, irrespective of their location.

Mayer further elaborated on the capabilities of their platform: “The Blackline Live platform offers a revolutionary approach, allowing decision-makers to understand real-time situations and act quickly.

“This can include liaising with local or even federal agencies.”

Features that make a difference

Key offerings of Blackline Safety’s G7 solutions include:

  • Real-time monitoring: Ensuring safety for individual workers and those in emergency situations.
  • Flexibility: Easy to swap gas sensor cartridges adjusting to specific requirements.
  • Integration with Vlahi’s CERES software: A platform that provides information about the spread and movement of released gases.
  • Community alerts: Offering guidance on potential evacuation measures during major incidents.
  • Analytical insights: Allowing data to be integrated into other platforms for comprehensive analysis.

Emphasising the real-time capabilities, Mayer added, “Post-event analysis isn’t sufficient anymore.

!With our technology, organisations can actively collaborate with their teams on the ground and even anticipate potential future challenges.”

Recounting a real-life incident, a Fire Department Lieutenant from a major US city described the value of Blackline’s devices during a hazardous fuel spill.

He mentioned how the G7 detectors proved their effectiveness: “Having access to real-time data changed our approach.

“It enabled us to adapt our response strategies quickly and effectively.”
