In what’s being called the largest contract in its history, Blackline Safety Corp., a Calgary-based company that specializes in connected safety technology, has announced an $8.5-million expansion on a $3.5-million deal to protect over 850 workers announced in September 2023.

The unnamed midstream company purchased 1,025 G7 wearable gas-detection and lone worker devices, along with monitoring services. Combined with the previous deal, Blackline devices now protect all of the company’s nearly 2,000 field and site workers. The company also purchased 753 G7 Bridges to keep workers connected in remote areas via satellite.

“Prior to the first deal, the midstream company performed a comprehensive review of all available gas detection and lone worker devices, and [we] came out on top,” Blackline officials said in a statement. “The G7’s ability to tell them immediately when and where someone needs help—even in confined spaces and remote locations with no cellular signal—sealed the deal and the company moved to standardize on Blackline across their organization.”

The wearable G7 – with features such as SOS latch, fall and no motion detection, and real-time connectivity – provides a critical lifeline in case of emergency. When pairing G7x devices with G7 Bridge, which provides satellite connectivity in remote areas or regions with poor cellular connectivity, even the most remote workers are connected in real-time.
