Triax Technologies Launches Access Control, Advances Jobsite Visibility, Safety, Control

By Ken Briodagh June 10, 2019

Triax Technologies, a technology provider for the connected jobsite, recently announced that it has added new access control capabilities to its Spot-r platform, with the goal of providing advanced perimeter visibility to increase construction site safety and security and reduce contractors’ general liability risk. With the new Spot-r offering, the company said that contractors will have real-time, end-to-end visibility into worker location, safety events and activities.

“Site safety and security are critical to our operations,” said Nick Lettire, president and CEO, Lettire Construction. “Spot-r access control addresses both of these obligations, providing us with exactly what we need: one device that controls access as well as monitors the location and safety of workers onsite.”

A key component of the access control system includes the Spot-r Clip, which now provides a multipurpose credential for workers on the jobsite, replacing RFID tags and badges for site entry and identification. These Internet of Things (IoT) sensors attach to workers’ belts and are synched to a worker profile in the Spot-r dashboard where supervisors can manage worker certifications to ensure compliance with regulations, providing a higher level of control over who is and isn’t permitted to access a jobsite.

“Ensuring that only authorized people are on the jobsite is not only critical for security and safety but also for compliance,” said Pete Schermerhorn, president and CEO, Triax Technologies.  “For example, New York contractors need to ensure that workers have OSHA 30 training to comply with Local Law 196 or face stiff fines. The Spot-r Clip gives construction managers this certification information as soon as workers enter the site. It also helps to maintain security when work is taking place in public settings, like hospitals, schools, classified sites and other locations where day-to-day activities are in progress. By integrating access control with Triax’s proprietary network and wearable clip, contractors can not only control site entry and exit, but also monitor worker locations, providing peace of mind in these sensitive and secure environments.”
