Scott Seppers brings over 20 years of experience in vertical construction to the Trivent Safety team. He began his career in construction in 1998 working with a large international steel erection company. Over the course of working with iron Scott would evolve his skill set from apprentice iron worker up to the level of General Foreman. During this time, he went from learning the trade to teaching the trade to others, it was then that he discovered his passion for teaching and mentoring the next generation of iron workers. Not only with the trade, but in job site safety. His field experience / leadership as a general foreman with planning and managing work and developing multiple safety solutions for issues in the field as they occur are some of the strengths Scott brings to the Trivent team.
Scott has lived in Colorado for 37 years now and considers himself to be a “transplant native” a term which he has made for himself due to the fact he has been a resident for so many years and could not imagine living anywhere else. Like many others that were raised in the early 80’s, he attributes his hard work ethic and attention to detail to his father who showed him through his actions that any work needing to be done needs to be done right the first time.
Scott’s philosophy is that issues always arise in construction and it is up to us as individuals on how we receive them and create the solutions to move forward in a safe productive manner.
When Scott isn’t hard at work, he can be found enjoying time with his wife Kristie and their 1-year old son Benjamin. They enjoy a wide variety of extracurricular activities that Colorado has to offer and are frequently out enjoying the many offerings. From concerts and other live events to spending quality time together as a family, they enjoy the state we live in. One of Scott’s passions is Halloween. If you ever have the opportunity, I highly recommend going past his house during the month of October. The extravagant decorations are a site to see.
Scott is looking forward to playing a part in helping and developing solutions to potential problems for our clients in the future. Whether it be a simple question regarding fall protection, or developing your site specific safety plan, Scott can be counted on to help move you in the right direction.
