Global safety monitoring solution with 3G wireless

The Blackline Safety Loner® M6 device wirelessly monitors the safety of employees, including lone workers, and alerts monitoring personnel in real-time if the unexpected occurs. Responding to your employee’s exact location is fast and confident with a live-map and two-way voice calling. The device empowers your team to evacuate sites and facilities with mass notifications, accounting for the location of each worker during the process on the Blackline Live monitoring portal. Employees receive a visual, audible and vibration-based alarm on their device plus voice-message evacuation instructions.

Designed for industrial applications, Loner M6 incorporates cellular communications, an industrial-grade speakerphone, a blue LiveResponse™ light that confirms that help is on the way, assisted-GPS, automatic incident detection and manually-triggered safety features. Loner M6 features durable hardware to ensure your workers are safe in all environments. It is also compatible with Blackline’s location beacon positioning technology to map an employee’s location inside facilities where GPS signals are imprecise or unavailable.

All of Blackline’s solutions are wireless, software and infrastructure-free for easy implementation and a seamless user experience.

24/7 live monitoring for highest responsiveness

The Blackline Complete service plan delivers around-the-clock live safety monitoring, leveraging Blackline’s in-house Safety Operations Center or one of their Alarm Receiving Centre partners. Businesses can also choose to self-monitor their lone workers using our cloud-hosted Blackline Live portal. All features on the device are configurable on the portal to best fit your specific work environment needs. Blackline Safety is British Standard 8484: 2016 accredited.

Service Plans

All Loner M6 devices must be purchased with a service plan, which can be for 1 or 3 years.  These are available with the following options:

Self Monitoring vs Blackline Monitoring: If you have your own in-house safety team you can choose the self monitoring option.  This allows your team to monitor all of your Blackline safety devices using Blackline's cloud based monitoring application.  Alternatively, you can choose to have everything monitored by Blackline's 24/7/365 Safety Operations Centre or ARC (UK).  

With Voice: In the event of an emergency, the user can instantly connect with monitoring personnel via two-way speakerphone.  This option is slightly more expensive, so if you do not require this functionality you can choose the service plans without the voice option.




The Blackline Live portal is at the core of all Blackline Safety monitoring solutions, equipping businesses with leading alert management tools, dashboard and comprehensive configuration management of fielded devices. Blackline Live can be accessed from anywhere on an internet-connected device.

The safety status of every team member is visible at a glance using Blackline Live’s real-time maps, showing the location and alert status of all fielded devices. Custom floor and site plans work together with Location Beacons, delivering more comprehensive situational awareness where GPS may be unavailable or in and around complex facilities.

Employee-worn monitoring devices are easily configured for specific work environments. Each device is managed in Blackline Live using configuration profiles that make it easy to tailor device functionality to accommodate any need. Devices are configured wirelessly, over-the-air, ensuring they are always up-to-date and working as they should. Alert profiles are also configured through Blackline Live, with documented custom emergency protocols tailored to the device that instruct monitoring personnel how to manage optimised emergency responses. Using address book contacts stored in Blackline Live, personnel know who to call and how to escalate responses, up to and including EMS, fire or police.

Whether you decide to monitor in-house or take advantage of Blackline's 24/7 Safety Operations Centre, monitoring personnel use Blackline Live to provide them with critical insights and workflows to manage emergency alerts in real-time. As a cloud-hosted web portal, Blackline Live doesn't require IT approved downloads or costly installation — accessing your account is as simple as logging in. Delivering situational awareness communicated from employee-worn devices in the field, Blackline Live provides all the tools necessary for monitoring personnel to manage a world-class emergency response.

Supporting gas detection programs, G7 devices equipped with gas sensors wirelessly communicate compliance and usage data to Blackline Live for automatic reporting, alleviating the need for manual data collection. From incident through to resolution all activities are time-stamped for future reporting, including notes that are used to document the response.
