Using drone technology to minimise risks to operatives

The risks posed on site should be minimised whenever possible.

On occasion the dangerous nature of the construction industry cannot be avoided, it is therefore essential that certain activities such as demolitions are well planned and embarked on with caution.

Sites have minimised the risk to their workforce by:

  • Using aerial surveillance drones to check the security of the demolition area, to ensure that it is safe and clear prior to the ‘blow down’.

Thus mitigating the risks facing operatives on site.

Please be aware of unpermitted access, privacy, and manoeuvring responsibly when operating drones or other UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles). It is advised to consider Public Liability Insurance when operating drone vehicles for commercial use.
