Your team handles toxic, biological and radioactive materials daily. Can your incident response plan make a difference for your lone workers?


A sector of Manufacturing, the Biotech & Pharma industry is responsible for developing and delivering medicines, cell therapies, vaccines, and related technology and equipment. To meet objectives, your lone workers work diligently, often beyond the sight and sound of others, in expansive labs and facilities.

How do you ensure the safety of your industry’s most important asset—your employees?

The Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA) in the United States reports this industry often violates safety regulations, including fit testing to proper respiratory storage under the Respiratory Protection Standard. OSHA also found many of these companies failed to properly train employees.

Multiple incidents occur annually that put Biotech & Pharma lone workers in danger—with many left on short or long-term disability.


Your teams often work in laboratories and manufacturing facilities that pose many risks. While PPE is mandatory, sometimes safety glasses, bunny suits, and respirators  aren’t enough to protect your lone workers from incidents that may require emergency response.

The safety of your scientists, doctors, factory line staff and distributors is a top priority. Do you have the right protocols for your team when a safety incident occurs?


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. Some facilities offer wall-mounted emergency buttons. These approaches have proven incapable of responding in real time or may be inaccessible, denying your lone workers the assistance they need.

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 and health incidents, in the shortest time possible.

In Biotech & Pharma applications where Blackline’s technology is used, responders can be directed in real-time not only to a precise outdoor location, but also the exact floor and room where a lone worker is located inside a lab or research facility.

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