MANUFACTURING

Producing food, machinery, plastics, metals and chemicals puts your team at risk every day—are you prepared to respond efficiently when an incident occurs?

STATE OF THE INDUSTRY

Turning raw materials into valuable products, your team may work in about 20 subsectors including food, plastics, electronics, paper and biotech & pharma. To get the job done, your employees work long hours with heavy-duty equipment in bustling production facilities, prone to physically challenging duties and fatigue.

How are you ensuring the safety of your industry’s most important asset—your employees?

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics in the United States, this industry reports more than 300 work-related fatalities each year. In addition, Health and Safety Executive (HSE) in the UK reports in 2013 and 2014 manufacturing accounted for about 10 percent of fatalities in the British workforce, with nearly one in five reporting non-fatal injuries.

Thousands of incidents occur annually that put manufacturing workers on disability—with many never able to work again. Your ability to send the fastest emergency response possible can reduce suffering of lone workers waiting for help and reduce the impact of long-term injury.


INDUSTRY STATISTICS

YOUR SAFETY POLICY

Your teams work near heavy-duty machinery, conveyor belts, combustible liquids and spray booths. Warehouses and production plants are noisy and fast-paced, with many moving parts.

From engineers and operators to assemblers and compounders, you are responsible for the safety of all of your employees.

Do you have the most efficient processes in place to help your lone workers when a safety incident occurs?

A BETTER WAY TO RESPOND

To make a difference, no time can be wasted in managing your emergency response.

Many organizations still use antiquated check-in procedures to ensure the ongoing safety of employees. This approach has proven it is not capable of responding fast enough, in real-time to make a difference for your lone workers.

Optimized emergency response time is at the core of Blackline Safety’s solutions. We provide all customers with the ability to quickly respond to injuries, health incidents and machinery accidents, in the shortest time possible.

In Manufacturing applications where Blackline’s technology is used, responders can be directed in real-time not only to a precise outdoor location, but the exact floor and room a lone worker is located if indoors.

Our technology shaves minutes, even hours, off response time, when lone workers need help—regardless of location
