In 2017, Blackline was the first connected safety technology company to introduce wearables with a modular approach to gas detection, robust direct-to-cloud communications and a comprehensive emergency response and evacuation management platform. Since that time, Blackline expanded its portfolio to include a new connected area gas detection product line, a robust range of sensors, push-to-talk voice collaboration and location-enabled data science that help businesses increase safety, productivity and quality.
Building upon its leading connected safety foundation, Blackline is expanding its sights further into the connected worker and connected workplace solutions.
