According to the health and safety government website – Working at height remains one of the biggest causes of fatalities and major injuries. The number one advisory to prevent these fatalities is to just avoid working from height unless completely necessary. Safety when working at height is a key challenge for many maintenance jobs. Working at height is substantial risk, and maintenance is often neglected as access is limited and not necessary.
Just because these maintenance jobs do not appear essential at first does not mean they should be neglected. Not only can applying coatings improve the look of buildings and structures but there are also benefits such as reducing a buildings heat loss and in turn limiting the amount of carbon dioxide being released. By using a drone to complete these maintenance tasks it significantly reduces the safety risks associated as there is removes the need for working at height. Not only does the use of a drone remove the need for people to work at height but it also improves accessibility, reduces costs and is more environmentally friendly.
