Company partnered with Access Technology Group enhanced system
Blackline Safety announced that it has partnered with Access Technology Group, a Dutch innovator in digital shutdowns and turnarounds, to integrate Blackline’s G7 EXO portable area gas monitors with Access Technology’s VISICS Digital Confined Space Monitoring system.
“Through this partnership, we are now able to link our equipment and live stream gas readings to the VISICS platform to support the new best practices of confined space monitoring and deliver even more value to our customers,” said Brendon Cook, Chief Partnership Officer, Blackline Safety.
The VISICS system takes information from workers’ badges and communication devices to manage and monitor their entries into confined spaces. Live camera feeds both inside and outside the space enable remote teams to centrally monitor each confined space and all activities inside and out.
The integration of the two technologies enables Blackline’s G7 EXO monitors to communicate directly with the VISICS network streaming gas readings – sampled from within a confined space – to add another layer of safety monitoring and protection during turnaround and shutdowns.
