ften, safety and risk management dictates that your plant is taken off-line before inspections begin. This impacts your production.
The use of manual inspection, rope access, full-sized helicopters or scaffolding to access difficult-to-reach structures is time-consuming and represents a further cost to your business.
Add to that lost revenue from shut-down.
Traditional methods of inspection are often unsafe and increase your business’ exposure to risk. Falls from height are the third most likely cause of fatality in the workplace and accounted for 24 deaths in Australia last year according to Safe Work Australia.
Live asset inspection using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) addresses these issues and delivers further benefits not offered by traditional methods. It allows your engineers to monitor and predict component failure. It allows you to minimise shut-down times.
Our UAVs produce crystal-clear video, still images, thermal imagery and radiometry. All imagery is captured digitally, and transmitted in real-time to inspection teams located on the ground. Your engineers can control the camera ensuring that areas of interest are accurately recorded and analysed in real-time.
Public land managers have a responsibility to ensure trees under their care are healthy and assessed for risks – especially when the trees have the capacity to cause injury.
Certain structural defects in trees are better diagnosed from above or within the tree’s canopy. Defects and decay, hidden from view from below need to be examined and assessed.
A recent Victoria Coroner’s finding into the death of a four year old girl recommended the use of drones to monitor trees from above.
Traditional methods of tree inspection are often unsafe. Free climbing, cherry-pickers and rope access are time-consuming and expensive.
Tree inspections using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) address these issues. It is safe, fast, cheap and accurate.
Uaviation is a certified operator that has a range of purpose-built aircraft. We can work independently or with arborists, land managers and inspection teams.
We offer a safe, cost effective method to achieve superior tree inspection results.
We produce crystal-clear video, still images, vegetation indexes, thermal imagery and radiometry. Your arborist can control the camera ensuring that areas of concern are accurately recorded for assessment.
There is no such thing as a safe tree but good maintenance by professionals ensures a safer tree and lower risk to you and the public.
T raditional methods are expensive, and can often require cherry pickers, platforms and lifts.
alls are the third most likely cause of a fatality in the workplace. Drones eliminate the use of ladders, lifts, leading edge, scaffolding, or rope access, protecting employees and business from this risk.
rone inspections are more efficient than traditional methods as they limit the disruption to business. With accurate details and imagery, drone surveys provide precise information for repair costings. Images are available within one hour, and a full inspection report is completed within 24 hours.
