We’ve talked a lot about how the G7 delivers when it comes to lone worker safety. But how is it different than any of the other products out there on the market?
Well, the answer to that is simple: the G7 is able to deliver consistently when it comes to lone worker safety and toxic gas detection.

Rather than relying on a beeper or alarm, which is downright impossible for anyone to hear in the event of a leak or downed worker, the G7 connects lone workers with people. The manufacturer of the G7, Blackline Safety, likes to say “Alarms don’t save people; people save people.”

And here at Safety Scan, we tend to agree. G7 portable wireless gas detectors make this more than just a selling point, though; they make it a reality.

G7 Features

When it comes to lone worker safety, companies in the oil, gas, and manufacturing sectors need to make sure they have proper protocols installed. The G7 makes that easier than ever before.

By connecting lone workers with supervisors and live emergency response teams through two-way messaging, monitoring and detecting toxic gas levels in real time, and automatically alerting emergency response teams to a leak, fall, or no motion incident without the need for the user to even lift a finger makes this the safest, most advanced gas detection monitor for lone workers in a variety of applications.

Here’s a quick rundown of features included with the G7c portable wireless gas detector device:

  • Fall detection and no-motion detection
  • Two-way messaging
  • Speaker phone capability
  • SOS alert in the event of an emergency or toxic gas leak
  • Periodic, automatic check-ins
  • GPS location tracking to point response teams directly to the leak or downed worker
  • Indoor location compatible — 3G and satellite connectivity ensure that the G7 works in all remote locations
  • Gas alarms with real-time, accurate detection of gases such as H2S, carbon monoxide, electrochemical oxygen, carbon dioxide, ammonia, and LEL combustible gases

Additional safety features that come embedded within these lone worker devices include time-weighted average of gas leaks, short-term exposure limits, high gas alerts, low gas alerts, bump test and calibration notifications, and more.

How It Helps Lone Workers

All of this is well and good, but how does the G7 actually improve lone worker safety? Well, we’re glad you asked.

The G7 is the future of lone worker safety utilizes 3G cellular networks to wirelessly connect lone workers to real people in real time, no matter where they are. That means your team has the capability and peace of mind to work in the most remote locations without having to worry about what to do in case of an emergency.

The real-time live monitoring team can track workers using the devices GPS, and send out the proper alerts in the event of an emergency — allowing for proper evacuation and accountability protocols to be put into place in the matter of seconds.

And we haven’t even dove into the gas leak detection capabilities of the G7 portable wireless gas detectors.

Lone workers subject themselves to dangerous scenarios on a daily basis. With toxic (and impossible to see or even smell) gases all around them, there’s no way for them to know whether or not they are in the presence of danger. Unless they have a portable gas detector, that is.

The G7 sensors have the ability to detect the presence of even trace amounts of toxic gases such as hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, ammonia, and more in real time. With automatic check-ins and alerts, the G7 can notify the worker whether or not they are in the presence of these gases in order to protect them from inhalation or worse.

There are multiple G7 devices available for gas detection, including a single cartridge (capable of utilizing one gas sensor at a time) and quad cartridge (can detect up to four gases at one time).

And of course, in the event that the lone worker is rendered incapacitated due to high levels of toxic gas, the G7 will call for help even when the worker can’t.

This is game-changing, life-saving technology. And it’s available now to lone workers and industries all around the United States. Contact Safety Scan today to learn more or request a free demonstration at your facility.
