After reading an article about using drones on construction sites, I was excited yet a little bit anxious.
Using drones for inspections, job site progressing, and documentation would be a nice bonus. Being able to get into areas easily that might require ladders, lifts, or scaffolding would help out a lot. Doing inspections to roofs or areas that require specialized personal protective gear would become easy and routine. And let’s not forget, sewer inspectors use remote cameras already for the inspection of underground lines.
The body monitors were interesting also. Being able to monitor the health of your workers, and keep them and others safer is a great tool. I know from my time working in the field that dehydration can really hurt the safety and production of workers. Being able to monitor all of a worker’s vitals would be a benefit to the company and the worker.
I can see all these pluses. However, I really feel it could become too invasive! And where do we draw the line? Tell me your thoughts.
Oh by the way… Here is the link to the article.
