CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - May 31, 2012) - Blackline GPS (TSX VENTURE:BLN) ("Blackline") is pleased to announce that Air Liquide Canada has ordered and will deploy Blackline's second-generation Loner® SMD worker safety monitoring device. Air Liquide Canada is part of the Air Liquide Group, the world leader in gases for industry, health and the environment. This purchase follows Air Liquide Industrial U.S. LP's purchase and deployment of Loner safety monitors for use by their Field Services personnel across the United States.
"Whether an Air Liquide employee spends all or part of their day working out of sight or sound of others, Loner SMD enables monitoring personnel to efficiently respond to work-alone safety incidents that may occur", said Greg Rude, Blackline's VP Industrial Sales. "Air Liquide's personnel and their families can be confident that employees remain connected and monitored, even when working alone."
Blackline's Loner SMD delivers true, practical safety monitoring with automatic monitoring of workers' safety. Incorporating patented True Fall Detection™ technology, Loner SMD automatically detects falls and identifies man-down incidents where a worker becomes motionless, alerting others. Compared to competitive solutions that require the press and hold of an emergency button for several seconds - time that a worker may not have - Loner SMD includes an intuitive emergency latch that can be instantly released to request help. To aid in mobilizing an incident response, monitoring personnel map the worker's GPS location while Loner SMD's multi-tone audible and bright visual indicators help emergency responders quickly locate the worker.
