Blackline Safety Corp. has announced that it has signed a new contract to provide G7c devices and services to a major U.S. utility provider based in California.

The contract — a collaboration between Blackline Safety and one of its U.S. channel partners — is valued at more than $1.5 million. The utility provider has already started rolling out the devices across their organization.

In total, the gas and electric company will be rolling out 1,000 G7c lone worker devices to protect their frontline workers. The award-winning wearable G7c — with features such as SOS latch, fall and no motion detection, and real-time connectivity — provides a critical lifeline in case of emergency.

“Our devices are particularly well suited to the utility industry,” said Blackline Safety President and Chief Growth Officer, Sean Stinson. “The G7 is highly customizable with everything from multi-gas detection to two-way voice and lone worker features. Companies don’t need multiple vendors and expensive infrastructure to keep their people safe. Blackline’s all-in-one solutions have them covered.”


The California provider has also signed on for monitoring service by Blackline’s Safety Operations Center (SOC). Blackline’s in-house SOC is available 24/7 and can respond to someone who needs help in seconds.

“Our SOC monitoring services are an extra layer of protection for those who work alone,” said Stinson. “Paired with our devices, we’re setting the standard for the safest, most effective lone worker solution on the market.”
