Bravo Target Safety, a leading provider of industrial and oilfield emergency response and safety services, today announced a partnership with Blackline Safety to leverage the safety and connectivity of Blackline’s G7c emergency response management, cloud-hosted safety portal and business analytics software. Bravo Target Safety is the first company in the world to use G7c for industrial turnaround projects.

From its seven locations in Alberta, Bravo Target Safety serves clients in the energy, chemical, mining and construction industries across Western Canada. Principal services include: turnarounds/shutdowns, emergency response, hydrocarbon firefighting and well control. The Bravo Target Safety team distinguishes itself by providing unrivaled service, support and response times.

Blackline Safety's G7c is a wearable safety device that uses 3G cellular networks to wirelessly connect front-line workers, often working alone, to live monitoring centers. Automatically detecting gases (including hydrogen sulfide, oxygen, carbon monoxide and explosive gases), injuries and other hazards, G7c accounts for employees’ wellbeing and whereabouts in real-time. All safety incidents are communicated to 24/7 live monitoring personnel who can mobilize responders to the employee’s exact location or trigger an evacuation. Two-way voice calling, constant connectivity and real-time alerting provide exceptional situational awareness to efficiently manage emergency responses.

“We are committed to keeping our teams safe when working on maintenance projects,” says Kevin O’Brien, CEO, Bravo Target Safety. “When we set out to connect our personnel using safety technology, we quickly identified G7c as the most innovative solution of its kind on the market.”

In a first phase, Bravo Target Safety is deploying 250 G7c devices to protect personnel. Previously, gas detection was limited to simple monitoring devices with basic capabilities. With G7c, workers will benefit from real-time safety features including two-way communications, gas alarms, fall detection, no-motion detection, scheduled check-ins, GPS location technology and a manual SOS latch. In addition to these life-saving features, G7c technology helps Bravo Target Safety work more efficiently.

“Our team at Blackline Safety is excited to support Bravo Target Safety and their leadership in the plant maintenance sector,” adds Sean Stinson, VP Sales and Product Management at Blackline Safety. “Our new, highly competitive energy economy requires businesses to find innovative ways of increasing efficiencies. While our G7c device has redefined what’s possible on the wireless gas detection and connected worker fronts, for the first time, it also connects customers’ safety and operations goals together.”

“Beyond the potential to save lives, G7c generates a wealth of data for analysis. For example, it reports the location of low level gas readings to the Blackline portal, which traditional monitors failed to capture. This information enables decision-makers to quickly see where leaks may be occurring, highlighting the need for remediation. With this intelligence, our clients may pre-empt hazards and avoid unnecessary expenditures — or worse — inadvertent employee exposures. We’re working with Blackline because we need the best wearable safety technology to protect our people while generating powerful business intelligence for our customers,” concludes Mr. O’Brien.
