The oil & gas industry has a poor reputation when it comes to worker safety. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), approximately 489 oil & gas workers were killed on the job between 2013-2017. Whether exposed to hazardous chemicals, falling from unstable scaffolding, or accidentally igniting a flame, safety risks abound in oil & gas. And because the industry is so manual, these hazards show no sign of slowing down (especially when production increases) - unless individual organizations invest in autonomous solutions for asset inspection and management.
To improve safety on-site, the removal of workers from perilous situations is imperative. Drones and other unmanned aerial vehicles offer a low-cost solution to these issues, with additional benefits in expanded data accessibility and security. In this eBook, you’ll learn how to replace manual inspections with automated surveys.
