Triax understands the complexities of an active construction site, which is why we work every day to streamline processes, boost efficiency, and provide value to our clients. Everything we do is in the interest of our customers and making projects safer, better, and faster – whether that’s our Client Engagement team in the field or our engineers who are designing, developing, and supporting our products. Today in Faces from the Field, we’re introducing you to Scott Caudle, a Strategic Account Manager.
When I first learned about Triax’s commitment to improving construction safety and productivity, I thought, “This is a company I want to be a part of.” For the better part of the last three decades, I’ve enjoyed the privilege of working in two parallel careers. My primary career began in the early-1990s in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry. Working as an architect for several major firms, I gained invaluable experience participating in the design, engineering and construction of projects around the world. By the end of the decade, I had the opportunity to sell AEC-focused software to design and construction firms across the country, which gave me a chance to broaden my experience and work with a wider range of companies and project types.
My second career started a little earlier. I joined the U.S. Army after high school and trained as a combat medic. After active duty, I continued my military career in the Army National Guard, and today, I serve as Flight Paramedic NCO in a medical evacuation company. This work gives life-saving treatment to the injured while evacuating them to a high level of care, and while it can be very challenging, it is also very rewarding.
It is the melding of these two backgrounds and passions that drew me to Triax, and it also provides me a unique perspective of the safety and productivity challenges that arise on a fast-moving jobsite. Both the military and construction fields carry inherent risks. We attempt to mitigate those risks through education and by identifying potential hazards, training with equipment, establishing and continuously refining safety procedures, proactive monitoring, and open communication between those in the field and safety leaders. As I have told my soldiers for years, “The best medic is a bored medic,” meaning that if medics are bored, no one is getting hurt, and that’s a good thing.
Triax’s Spot-r system augments risk mitigation with advanced wearable and sensor technology. By automatically detecting worker falls, documenting safety incidents, and empowering every worker to easily notify supervisors when they see an unsafe condition, or another safety issue arises, Spot-r allows safety leaders and teams to build safer and smarter. Preventing an accident minimizes lost time, potential claims, regulatory fines – not to mention the fact that when workers have a safer work environment, morale is higher and productivity increases.
As an architect, I had the privilege of working on projects that affect people in a positive way every day, and as a paramedic, I have the privilege of helping people during their most trying times. Now, I am very happy to now be part of Triax’s mission to make projects safer, smarter and faster.
