Blackline Safety announced that it has secured a new deal, valued at $3.5 million, with a “leading North American infrastructure company with operations in natural gas, oil and power industries.”

The company, which was not named, selected Blackline Safety to provide more than 850 G7x cloud-connected wearable safety devices for their workforce, who often work in remote or confined spaces in hazardous locations, it said in a press release.

The company also purchased over 850 G7 Bridges, Blackline’s portable base station that provides a critical satellite uplink in areas of poor connectivity. To ensure quick and easy compliance operations, the company added on over 230 G7 Docks, Blackline’s solution to calibrating, bump testing and charging G7 wearable devices.

“The energy company originally piloted Blackline’s safety technology at a single site. The G7’s real-time connectivity, coupled with the insights available through our comprehensive reporting suite, Blackline Analytics, really impressed them and was the connected solution they were searching for,” said Sean Stinson, Blackline Safety’s president and chief growth officer.

“The fact that our technology can tell them immediately when and where someone needs help — even in confined spaces and remote locations with no cellular signal — sealed the deal. The company is now standardizing on a fleet of Blackline devices to protect their workers across North America,” added Stinson.

This is the third major deal Blackline Safety has announced this month—the previous deals in the fire hazmat and Middle East energy industries—all of which have reported Blackline’s real-time connectivity as being instrumental in winning the new contracts.

“We’re thrilled that more and more companies are embracing the value of connected gas detection and lone worker technology. These organizations are prioritizing their workers’ safety by giving them the confidence to get the job done and return home safe at the end of their day. With Blackline’s all-in-one solutions, they can provide their workers that security and optimize operations at the same time,” Stinson said.
