It is usually difficult for managers to understand operational risks for workers in the oil and gas industries and it is difficult to locate workers in trouble. Hence, at the National Safety Council Safety Congress & Expo in San Diego, a new wearable gas detector  was launched that is capable of identifying harmful gasses in the air and consists of direct-to-cloud cellular connectivity, a single platform to connect and view all devices from a single portal, and GPS mapping to allow managers to instantly trace workers in trouble and understand on-the-ground incidents

“With this new technology, we’re bringing unprecedented levels of connectivity to industrial workplaces,” said Cody Slater, Blackline Safety CEO. “We’re responding to a direct need in the market, giving safety managers higher performing technology to access reliable, actionable data at their fingertips … helping to reduce the risk of injury, boost productivity and bring proactive safety management to a new level.”

The G6’s embedded sensors can detect harmful gasses in the air including hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, and sulfur dioxide. Integrated solutions are high in demand due to their consistency and efficiency. This easy-to-use wearable device will enable managers across a variety of industries to ensure worker safety by monitoring surroundings and connecting to managers in real-time

“Today’s safety and operational leaders are looking for connected solutions that support their number one goal, which is to protect workers from hazards, so they arrive home safely at the end of the day,” said Slater. “Our customer-driven approach to innovation is helping to build a world where adaptive, proactive safety programs are the norm, making it possible to reduce workplace injuries and increase productivity at the same time.”
