Session to Showcase Capabilities, Use Cases, Insurance Implications of Today’s Jobsite Tech
NORWALK, Conn., Jan. 29, 2018 – Triax Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of technology for the connected jobsite, today announced that its President and COO, Pete Schermerhorn, will join leaders from major construction firms, Gilbane and Suffolk, as well as leading insurance firm, AIG, in a presentation that addresses the impact of technology on jobsite safety. This presentation is taking place at the Associated General Contractors (AGC) Surety Bonding & Construction Risk Management conference, which runs from Jan. 29-31 at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, FL. Triax will be demonstrating its Spot-r IoT- enabled solution at the conference.
The presentation, “Wearing It: Jobsite Technology That’s Improving Worker Safety, Increasing Visibility and Mitigating Risk,” takes place Tues., Jan. 30, 2018, 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. EST. The presenters will discuss how emerging wearable technologies are enabling companies to monitor worker safety and equipment operation to minimize or prevent incidents at the jobsite.
Thomas Grandmaison, EVP, Energy & Construction Industry Leader at AIG, will join Schermerhorn to discuss jobsite technology’s impact on risk and hazard identification, assessment, and management. Doug Ware, VP of Risk Management at Suffolk, and Don Naber, SVP – Director of Risk Management at Gilbane, will discuss how their organizations have implemented Spot-r by Triax to monitor site safety, identify real-time worker headcounts and location, and strengthen current evacuation procedures. The session will be moderated by William Noonan, EVP, Willis Towers Watson.
“Since launching our Spot-r system in 2017, we’ve seen tremendous interest and response from risk management and insurance professionals,” said Schermerhorn. “We’ve developed a robust safety system that connects the jobsite, provides total digital visibility, and gives decision-makers the information they need to improve overall safety and mitigate risks.”
Spot-r by Triax provides data-driven visibility into workforce and equipment location, activity, and utilization. Leveraging the cloud for real-time, actionable insights, this technology is changing the way contractors manage people, resources, information, and risk. The company recently announced Spot-r EvacTag, the first construction-specific solution of its kind to alert workers to a jobsite evacuation with a high-decibel, highly visual alarm.
Triax also will be presenting and exhibiting at AGC’s 99th Annual Convention in New Orleans from February 26-28.
