If your business engages contractors that operate drones or other Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) for commercial purposes, Cm3 can help you meet your obligations for their safe use.
There are important rules applied to the use of drones and RPAS, and penalties for breaking them. These include fines, restrictions of practice, and up to 2-year prison terms in serious instances such as becoming a hazard to other aircraft.
Where are businesses utilising drones and RPAS?
Drones are increasingly being used for commercial applications across several industries, common activities include:
- Property inspections
- Facility maintenance
- Real estate sales and promotion
- Infrastructure inspection
- Field surveys
- Pest and environmental management
The Royal Flying Doctor Service recently announced use of drones for medication delivery in isolated regions.
Ensuring contractor compliance for drone & RPAS use
Your contractors need to ensure they comply with Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) requirements, and this is where Cm3 can help. Clients on Cm3 are now able to request that their contractors complete a new contractor Risk Review covering the use of Drones and other Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems.
This prequalification assessment has been modelled on the CASA requirements and will assist you to ensuring the safe operation of RPAS for your work. This includes the collection of important information including the operator’s accreditations, certificates, and remote pilot licence.
