If you operate an industrial site, or are in the process of setting one up, you likely already understand the importance of regular site inspections, as well as the many challenges that stand in the way of doing it effectively and safely. Many industries rely on a cohesive ecosystem in their sites but find the challenges of inspecting them to assure this a little difficult. However, as technology advances, there are new solutions coming out each day to meet these types of challenges, and drone inspection technology offers one of the most powerful and effective ways to do this. Here are some of the ways that drones can help meet the challenges of site inspections head-on.
Maintaining Site Safety
Conducting inspections can sometimes be a dangerous task, especially where hard to reach areas and confined spaces are concerned. Thanks to surveying and inspection drones, however, these areas can be easily reached without putting anybody at risk. This in turn makes site inspections a far safer affair, and also makes it easier to maintain the safety of your facility and its equipment.
Facilitating Better Site Security
While drones being used for surveillance may seem to some like an Orwellian approach, when it comes to maintaining the security of a vast industrial complex, they offer one of the most dynamic and effective solutions around. A large area can be covered and inspected in no time at all, highlighting weak-points in your facility’s security measures, or offering an excellent viewpoint for investigations.
Where heat producing equipment needs to be inspected, the process can be dangerous where people are concerned. To avoid this, facilities often have to halt operations when conducting a site survey, a bout of downtime which no business has ever welcomed.
A Fraction of the Cost and Much Less Time
There are far fewer costs involved with utilising drone inspection technology to conduct a site inspection with regards to labour. On top of that, site inspections can be conducted with minimal downtime, passing on the savings to your business.
