Blackline Safety’s recently launched G6 single-gas detector has been recognized for innovative product design by Red Dot, and for outstanding product development in the area of industrial hygiene by Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S).
“The Red Dot award validates the user-centered approach we took when collaborating on G6’s development with our design partner, Advanta Design,” said Phil Benson, VP, product design and data analytics, Blackline Safety. “We kept HSE workers and their real-world tasks in mind through every step of the design process.”
In addition to product design, G6 has been honoured for product development in the Gas and Vapor Monitoring category by OH&S through its 2023 Industrial Hygiene Awards.
Now in its third year, the program honours outstanding product development achievements of health and safety manufacturers whose products or services are considered particularly noteworthy in their ability to improve industrial hygiene. This is the ninth time in 10 years Blackline Safety has been awarded for its new product innovations by OH&S.
Released in late 2022, G6 is a fully connected and intuitive connected single-gas detector that uses 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.”
