Blackline Safety adds industrial contact tracing capability to its intrinsically safe cloud-connected wearable devices
On 27th April 2020, Blackline Safety have launched its new Close Contact Report that supports users of the G7 safety wearable devices during work hours by mapping the close interactions between employees.
The Loner Mobile smartphone app has been updated to include tracing coverage for after hours and off the worksite to provide coverage for businesses and their personnel.
Blackline coincided the launch of their new contact tracing tool with the World Day for Safety and Health at Work. “The COVID-19 outbreak only amplifies the need for connected safety technology at work, as organisations deemed essential have been forced to respond quickly with additional methods to ensure their workers remain safe. Our new contact tracing tools will help businesses proactively monitor their social distancing performance and, should an employee contract COVID-19 or present with symptoms, this report will help them identify points of close employee contact inside their organisation.” (Sean Stinson. VP Sales and Product Management for Blackline Safety)
