Drones are extremely helpful to manufacturing businesses during surveys and inspections. Hard-to-reach assets can be viewed at close range and in most cases the job site can remain fully operational, rather than having to be closed or shutdown. Building inspections using The Sky Guys’ technology are typically much faster than an in-person inspection, and they can gather information on the grounds, walls, doors, rooftop, heating, ventilation and air conditioning, and other assets. Daily flights can also be used to audit site conditions, identify hazards, and improve logistic planning.
Drones can also eliminate the need for certain safety protocols, which can be time consuming to acquire. For instance, the Ministry of Labor requires that any facility with a roof height greater than 3m has a Working at Heights certification, Fall Arrest certification, harnesses, tie-offs and so on. But the use of drones removes the need for these certifications.
