Drones: enhancing work safety - workshop

Learn how drone technology can reduce risks for workers and improve productivity at this World of Drones Congress workshop.

Case studies will be presented by businesses using drones successfully to eliminate or reduce work health and safety hazards and risks.

Hear from:

  • Aerodyne Australia UAV Pty Ltd who use drones for telecom tower inspections, high voltage power inspections, oil and gas pipeline inspections, construction site inspections and complex aerial mapping projects especially in remote areas.
  • Hover UAV use drones for shark research, conservation and public safety surveillance. They record all fauna sighted to help researchers build a picture of what species are prevalent at certain times of the year.
  • XM2 use drones to monitor crop health in harsh conditions over large geographical areas, removing the need for manual surveying. They also use drones to inspect wind turbines, eliminating work at height risks
  • Sitesee use drones for cell tower inspection to reduce climbs by staff, improving safety while minimising cost and maximising tower usage.
  • V-TOL Aerospace Pty Limited has demonstrated accelerating Broad Area Disaster Recovery using Drones, AI and advanced BVLOS operations. In 2018 the World Bank and DFAT contracted V-TOL to survey Tongatapu, post Cyclone Gita.
  • Queensland Ship Surveyors Pty Ltd (QSS) use a collision tolerant drone to inspect inaccessible, complex, cluttered, confined spaces as well as above ground structures.
