Today Blackline Safety Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BLN) announces that its Loner Bridge System was recognized as the leading safety product of 2015, in the 'Safety Monitoring Devices' category, by Occupational Health & Safety Magazine.
"The high quality and breadth of the 2015 entries proves once again how innovative safety and health manufacturers are as they compete in this fast-growing global market," says OH&S Editor Jerry Laws. "Informing our readers and online audience about the best new products available to solve their key safety and health challenges has always been part of our magazine's mission, and this contest has become a unique and very popular extension of our outreach to the audience we serve."
"We are honored to win our second 'New Product of the Year' award. Having won in 2013 with Loner IS, we address lone worker protection for hazardous locations," says Sean Stinson, Blackline's VP Sales and Product Management. "For 2015, our new Loner Bridge System now extends the same monitoring capability to the most remote locations using satellite communications. The success of this new innovation has significantly contributed to our growth over the last four quarters."
The Loner Bridge System was designed from the ground up to monitor the safety of remote workers. Comprised of two components, a portable satellite base station and a person-worn safety monitoring device, the Loner Bridge System delivers a valuable combination of automatic safety incident detection, manually-triggered safety alerts, communications and employee positioning technology. Our technology can continuously monitor employees for an injury, health event or physical assault. Should an incident occur, the Loner Bridge System communicates a safety alert in real-time to monitoring personnel, enabling emergency response in the fastest possible timeframe, rather than hours or potentially days later.
