Incorporating this drone technology into your organisation can mean changing the risk profile of your operations significantly. The increase of risk can however be mitigated by implementing the system in the correct way and can mean there is a reduction in risk to personnel by reducing the need to work at height or expose themselves to dangerous situations.
There are a number of guidance documents, laws and regulations that all organisations will want to comply with as well as ensure they do not invalidate any insurance policies. Anyone working in a Risk and Compliance role may want familiarise themselves with the ICO Guidance for CCTV Operators (which covers drone operations) and the Air Navigation Order.
Many organisations are choosing to fully outsource their UAS strategy. This is a service Consortiq provides, however we recognise the benefits for many organisations who prefer to invest in-house. We believe introducing a foundation of good training, expert consultancy, safety management software and enabling ongoing and continual professional development can expertly mitigate risks cheaply, should you choose ‘go it alone’; while still allowing for the realisation of business and cost efficiencies. By engaging Consortiq as your subject matter experts, we can help you navigate this relatively uncharted territory and get the most from the technology.
Safety is the heart of everything we do at Consortiq and we believe this needs to be the central pillar to any operation.
