Occupational Health and Safety Organization (OH&S) gave it’s product of the year award to Blackline Safety in the category of Industrial Gas Monitors for its use of NevadaNano’s Molecular Property Spectrometer™ (MPS™) Flammable Gas Sensor


CALGARY, Alberta–Blackline Safety Corp. (TSX.V: BLN), a global leader of gas detection and cloud-connected safety solutions, was honored by Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) Magazine with two New Product of the Year awards for its Industrial Contact Tracing solutions and G7 cloud-connected gas monitor with the NevadaNano MPSTM Flammable Gas Sensor. This recognition marks a total of 11 OH&S New Product of the Year awards honoring Blackline products over the last seven years.

Blackline’s suite of Industrial Contact Tracing solutions was named the winner in the Internet of Things category. Equipped with G7 connected wearables, cloud-hosted software and data analytics, customers benefit from efficient tools that proactively assess social distancing effectiveness and trace potential person-to-person contact, should an employee test positive for COVID-19 or present with symptoms. Blackline’s Industrial Contact Tracing solutions fill a gap where many industrial businesses cannot allow employees to bring smartphones onto worksites due to lack of intrinsic safety certification.

In June 2020, Blackline announced a partnership with NevadaNano, a developer and manufacturer of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS)-based gas sensors, and the launch of the revolutionary MPSTM Flammable Gas Sensor as part of the G7 cloud-connected product line. G7 wearables combined with the MPS sensor won an OH&S New Product award in the category of Industrial Hygiene – Gas Monitors. Together, they provide an accurate, linear response for the lower explosive limit (LEL) of the most common explosive gases and gas mixtures, including hydrogen. G7 wearables location-enable every LEL gas reading, automatically reporting measurements to the Blackline Safety Cloud. The MPS sensor incorporates technology that places all LEL readings into one of six classifications based on the types of gases detected. Within Blackline Analytics, a new MPS report unlocks insights that enable businesses to identify abnormalities and further leverage data to improve safety and productivity.
