Edon Management Selects Blackline GPS to Provide Lone Worker Safety Solution Province Wide

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - April 13, 2010) - Edon Management, an Alberta based facility management firm which serves over 12 million square feet of real estate across Alberta, and Blackline GPS Corporation (TSX VENTURE:BLN), a leading innovator of GPS tracking, location awareness, and security products and services, are pleased to announce the successful conclusion of an initial phased deployment of Loner GPS for use by Edon Management personnel.

"With the advent of a successful pilot launch in Southern Alberta, we are deploying the Loner GPS solution throughout the province. The product performed exactly to specification and meets work alone legislation in a single convenient and portable unit", said Erick Dillmann, Process Improvement Manager for Edon.

Lone worker legislation exists in Alberta under the Occupational Health and Safety Act and has become law in other provinces including British Columbia, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and New Brunswick.

"Lone worker safety is a real concern for companies at risk, and a single integrated unit that offers automated distress signaling with motion sensing and a panic button to summon help is a great advantage for people who are considered lone workers", said Blackline CEO Clark Swanson. "We see this as a significant growth market are pleased to have the opportunity to share our expertise in the field of lone worker safety".

Loner GPS ™ is a small, fits-on-the-hip product, that was developed as part of a larger product portfolio offering location based services. The size of a mobile phone, Loner™ is worn by the lone worker and constantly provides the lone worker's GPS location. It also includes a panic button for emergencies and motion detector that tracks lack of motion which can indicate a worker in distress.

Management of Blackline GPS is no stranger to the area of industrial safety. Company Chairman, Cody Slater was the founder and CEO of BW Technologies, among the world's largest industrial gas safety manufacturer. Cody Slater said, "Having the engineering team to deliver the next generation of product to address this new market is one of Blacklines competitive advantages. Edon Management is a leader in facility management and understands the value of protecting their employees with a level of technology that provides them peace of mind".

Blackline GPS has also extended Lone worker monitoring to the mobile phone via a Smartphone pay for service application called Loner™ Mobile. The Smartphone application serves to notify employers that their staff is safe and features an easy to use check-in system that operates with the push of a "hot key" on the phone.
