Drones are quickly transforming job sites, enabling companies to capture the aerial perspective more quickly and easily than ever before. But they are serving an even more important role: keeping the crew out of harm’s way. By allowing workers to remotely access hard-to-reach and dangerous terrain, inspect high-rise installations from the ground, and provide data on bridges and other infrastructure, drones are keeping workers—and the public—safer. So it’s no surprise that risk managers and health & safety professionals are turning to drones to improve safety records and enhance the overall culture of safety.
As with any new technology, drones also introduce new risks when not managed well. Tim Conroy of DPR Construction will share his experience of creating a drone program and establishing safety standards and risk-mitigation procedures—all while operating at maximum efficiency. Tim will tell us what he’s learned, what he’d do differently in the future, and some examples of DPR’s checklists.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- The most common risk-reducing use cases for drones on the job site
- How to establish standard procedures to ensure low-risk operations
- How risk managers and flight ops teams can collaborate for maximum safety and efficiency
- How to provide operational transparency to risk managers, legal, executives, and other stakeholders
- Why a culture of safety is the most effective risk-mitigating component of a drone operation
