Specialist

The project will train five staff to CAA (pilots for drones) standard. The purpose of the project is to negate the need for staff to work at extreme height whilst carrying out roof work inspections working at height is high risk. Therefore; we look to reduce staff working at height, thereby negate the risk apportioned to them This project will allow us to increase the number of roof inspections carried out by us. Resulting in upskilled staff and increased work outputs.
