Blackline Safety Corp., a company specialising in connected safety technology, has secured a new $1.4 million contract with a water utility provider in Australia.

This agreement involves the supply of Blackline’s Loner Mobile app and G7c cloud-connected safety devices.

The contract follows an independent analysis which identified Blackline Safety devices as the leading lone worker solution globally.

Details of the contract and technology

The latest deal is part of a series of successful contracts between Blackline Safety and water utility providers.

Blackline’s technology is known for features such as SOS latch, fall and no motion detection, and real-time connectivity, which are essential for ensuring worker safety in emergency situations.

Currently, these devices are used by half of the water and wastewater companies in the United Kingdom.

Vice President of International Sales at Blackline Safety, Peter Attalla, highlighted the suitability of their devices for the utility sector: “Our devices are particularly well suited to the utility industry, including water and wastewater,” said Attalla.

“People in these fields are at elevated risk when they go to work.”

The demand for comprehensive safety solutions

Utility workers often face various hazards including gas exposures, confined spaces, and extreme weather conditions.

Blackline’s products address these challenges by offering a turnkey solution that does not require extensive infrastructure or complex setups.

The Australian utility provider has also committed to three years of monitoring services through Blackline’s in-house Safety Operations Center, which operates 24/7.

Director of Blackline Safety’s Safety Operations Center, Heather Melder, also commented on the standards set by their products combined with monitoring services: “Blackline products, combined with our SOC monitoring, set the standard for the safest lone worker solution on the market,” said Melder.

“We’ve raised the bar in ensuring workers are safe while on the job—they’re protected because they’re connected.”
