OSHA using Drones as a Tool…But is it Legal?

As drones become more prevalent in society, you will see more organizations adopting drones a working tool.   Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is another organization that realizes the true values drones bring to the workplace.  To meet this new demand, OSHA is obtaining a Blanket Public Certificate of Waiver or Authorization (COA) from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to operate drones nationwide. Drones are as commonplace as chairs in an office.  If you do not currently hold a FAA Commercial Drone Pilot License, you should think about training now! his will give you a leg up on your competition in the job market.

OSHA uses drones with cameras to conduct at least nine inspections of employer facilities after obtaining permission from the companies’ management. The drones were most frequently deployed following accidents at work-sites that were considered too dangerous for OSHA inspectors to enter, including an oil drilling rig fire, a building collapse, a combustible dust blast, an accident on a television tower and a chemical plant explosion.

Currently, OSHA has to as organizations permission to fly over their facility.  Some lawyers are raising an eyebrow as this could open a pandora’s box of liabilities that historically may not have been detected.  Are these unauthorized and legal searches?  Read more and tell us what you think about OSHA using drones

Drone Competition- Aerial Battle

Drone racing has been a growing sport over the last few years and you can find thrilling championship races on various platforms like ESPN and YouTube.  Recently, Kids drone Zone held an Aerial Battle for scholars. The competition combined building and coding of drones. Scholars were met with various challenges under not only time constraints but also competition rules.

The drone competition focused on three elements flight skills, programming skills, and drone knowledge. Scholars flew a variety of drones from drones built during drone squad to programmable drones. Elementary middle school and high school scholars battled in the air for the top number one spot.

Scholars have been training for this competition since, January 2019. In addition to the drone competition, scholars also had to do a research project whereby they conducted live interviews with drone industry experts, created a written report, and presented their findings via live presentation to their peers.
