FIND OUT HOW DRONE TECH CAN IMPACT YOUR BUSINESS

Will Drone Tech Impact Your Job Site?

In recent years, the use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems—commonly called drones—has grown beyond anyone’s expectations. It is predicted that by the year 2021 commercial drone use in the United States will expand tenfold. We are entering a technological era in which drones can be used for minimizing potential safety disasters. However, don’t be tempted to skimp on safety marking products for your job site because the future of safety will be much more stringent.

Drones in Construction

Drone use in construction has seen tremendous growth. While dozens of industries use drones, the fastest growing commercial adopter is the construction industry with growth at 239% this past year. On the job site, drones are used primarily by Superintendents, technology managers, and project managers. Of course, construction safety is a leading factor in the advances being made in drone use. According to DroneDeploy, the four main uses of drones are job site risk mitigation, the bid process, quality control and assurance, preconstruction site planning, and progress tracking and communication.

Drones in Surveying

In addition, drones can be used for surveying a site, and this method will typically save time and money while yielding more accurate results. Drones can reach areas that are risky for humans and can fit into locations that people often can’t. A project manager can use 3D laser scanners to fly over a region and give the surveyor quality images of what the terrain appears like. Also, if clients are off-site drones can be a creative way to let clients “see” the progress of building, renovation, or inspection. In this way, they provide a very helpful visual standpoint that they wouldn’t have seen from the ground. [1]

Safety First

Most importantly, drones are making construction sites safer. According to the CDC, drones “could help reduce construction-related injury and death from falls, toxic chemical exposures, electrical hazards, or traumatic injury from vehicle and equipment collisions.” Safety correlates with money saved. When safety is a top priority, using drones should be an essential component of your technology strategy to mitigate this risk. However, like any piece of equipment, they can pose a safety threat in the wrong hands. Drone pilots must be trained and competent in compliance issues and airspace restrictions. In outsourcing drone flights, the company should be insured and licensed. This is not a time to cut corners. Without proper safety protocols when operating a drone on a construction site, the safety benefits of using them are negated. [2]
