UAV Health & Safety
Cyclops is committed to providing a safe working environment for both our employees, clients & assets to minimise accidents and near misses. This is reinforced by both our UAV Health & Safety policy, sector leading dynamic risk assessments through SGS and our vigorous ground and aerial planning prior to the commencement of every project.
A key advantage Cyclops have over other commercial operators is that we will only ever operate as a two man team, all are CAA qualified. No matter what the job, how complex or small, we will always have one operator flying the equipment and another operating the gimbal for collecting footage. This strict approach allows increased environmental and situational awareness, very much a key aspect of our UAV training from day one. Cyclops will employ additional industry personnel on-site should we require increased ‘spotters’ to work alongside our standard two man team.
We encourage all clients to view our ‘How it Works’ Workflow Info-graphic that clearly demonstrates the strict planning procedures that we follow to ensure the safety of all colleagues, assets and the general public whilst operating our equipment. UAV Health & Safety has been the key discussion point as the commercial drone industry grows, this is why Cyclops has gone above the required industry expectations with various certifications. Please visit our Qualified Drone Pilots page to review the specific qualifications and accreditation’s Cyclops UAV pilots hold.
If you would like to discuss our UAV Health & Safety practices in more detail, or how we implement risk assessments, planning and UAV operations please feel free to get in touch with the team directly.
