World’s first combined gas detector and two-way radio replaces both ‘beep-andflash’ gas monitors and hand-held radios with one connected device
No longer will commercial and industrial safety personnel need to purchase, wear or manage separate radios or walkie-talkies. Blackline Safety Corp. (TSXV: BLN) — the leader in connected safety technology — launches push-to-talk’ for its G7c personal gas detector. With the push of a button, employees can use a single device to collaborate with co-workers just like a traditional walkie talkie.
“After listening to dozens of customers in energy, telecom, utilities and aerospace sectors, we are the first to bring to market the tool that industry is asking for — a gas detector with built-in two-way radio. The result is the world’s most versatile connected gas detector that enables efficient employee communications, converging two devices into one while saving the added
Rather than the usual 16 or 32 channels offered by many conventional two-way radios, G7c push-to-talk delivers 100 channels for communication between teams, across facilities and even between different countries — all without need for Wi-Fi or other costly infrastructure. G7c devices work right out of the box, automatically connecting to wireless networks in over 100 countries. expense of a two-way radio.
HOW AUTOMATED EMPLOYEE CHECK-IN TECHNOLOGY BENEFITS LONE WORKERS & YOUR BOTTOM LINE
Lone worker-worn technology eliminates the drain on value delivered by your lone workers and and supervisors while dramatically increasing capability for rapid incident detection, employee locating and response management. Blackline’s lone worker monitoring devices and smartphone safety app provide a configurable check-in timer that confirms the employee’s well-being according to a regular schedule—and without degrading worker and supervisor productivity.
Blackline’s work-alone devices offer employees a couple of options to check in. The first is responding to a check-in request—the Loner device uses an audible, visual and tactile local alarm to call for the employee to check in. Checking in easy and quick—with the simple press inward of the red emergency latch.
FAILING TO CHECK IN
A visual, audible and tactile local alarm requests the employee to check in. The default check-in request period provides 30 seconds for the employee to check in. This timer can be configured over-the-air through an update to the device configuration profile within the monitoring account. If the lone worker is unable to check in before the end of the check-in request period, a missed check-in alert is communicated through wireless communications to the Blackline Safety Network. This alert is distributed to specified individuals within the organization according to the alert profile and the alert is managed by monitoring personnel through to resolution.
How It Work
Revolutionizing Gas Detection
G7c Blackline Safety uses 3G mobile network to connect your team wirelessly with real people.
In real-time to equip personnel direct monitors when someone needs help
G7c provides an exclusive custom modular design. Gas detection is adjusted to the working environment with sensor options.

Choice of Gas Sensor and Quad-Gas H2S, LEL, CO, O2, CO2, NH3.
SERVER SYNCHRONIZED CHECK-INS
Blackline’s lone worker devices, the Loner M6 Series and Loner Bridge System, each incorporate server-synchronized check-ins. Awareness of the next scheduled check-in exists both within the lone worker device and within the Blackline Safety Network—our core safety monitoring infrastructure. If an employee’s Loner device is damaged, the battery drains or the device moves beyond wireless coverage, safety monitoring personnel are notified when the employee fails to check in next.
