Securi-Guard Monitoring is to monitor Blackline Safety Europe’s latest G7 range of connected safety devices, which will be brought to the UK and European markets early in 2017.

Traditional personal gas detector systems operate much like smoke alarms, which rely on calling for help nearby with an audible alarm. In contrast, G7 stays linked to either a 2G/3G telecommunications connection, delivering continuous live monitoring of users wherever they are.

The G7 range consists of a standard protection device that continually monitors the safety of an employee and provides two-way text messaging combined with 2-way voice, fall detection, ‘no motion’ detection and ‘missed check in’ functions.

Single gas and quad gas devices in the range incorporate all the features of the standard device alongside integrated gas sensors. Users can select one of three interchangeable G7 cartridges—the Standard cartridge is suitable for facilities without exposure to gases.

Securi-Guard will provide 24/7 monitoring services for G7 and Blackline’s other protection devices from its lone worker monitoring centre.
