Identifying risks with thermal imaging

Anticipating danger is crucial in assessing the risk factor of an area.

Some dangers cannot be found with the human eye or without very close inspection. It is therefore important to implement alternative techniques to assess and identify risk.

One site achieved this level of inspection through the below example:

  • Together with Cambridge University the site has developed and has been using a thermal imaging tool to identify when sprayed concrete has achieved sufficient strength for it not to pose a danger to anyone walking beneath it;
  • All other methods rely on physical testing of the concrete which involve being in close proximity to the sample areas whereas this new thermal imaging technique works entirely from an area of safety.
