Blackline’s (BLN) G7c-connected wearable has been certified to the U.K.’s BS 8484:2022 standard.

The standard provides lone-worker products and service providers with a code of practice for the dispatch of a Level 1 police response. This way, providers can bypass the central 999 system for more efficient emergency response.

The British Safety Council estimates that up to 8 million workers in the U.K., or 22 per cent of the working population, are lone workers.

The G7c integrates 4G connectivity, location technology, and direct-to-cloud data streaming to support gas detection and lone-worker protection.

“Blackline Safety is extremely proud of our safety leadership in offering the only accredited device to protect lone workers who deal with gas under the newly upgraded BS 8484:2022 in the U.K.,” stated Cody Slater, Blackline’s Chair and CEO.

“The accreditation means our G7c cloud-connected solution can continue to support live monitoring teams to quickly locate workers during incidents and alert police, ambulance or fire services if needed. Given the U.K.’s leadership in lone worker legislation, we expect other jurisdictions to follow suit, making our technology well-positioned,” he added.

Blackline provides safety devices, cloud-connected software and data analytics to improve industrial workplace safety and operational performance.

Blackline Safety (BLN) is up by 5.65 per cent, trading at $1.87 per share as of 11:03 am ET.
