Protocol on Drones launched

The Health and Safety Protocol on Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)/Drones has been launched.

A UAS is defined as an aircraft flight that is controlled either autonomously, by on-board computers, or by a pilot using a remote control.

Health and Safety Services have developed the guidelines following extensive consultation.

Find out more about how to ensure the safe management of Drone flights either:

  • on, inside, or over University premises (by both the University and third parties); and
  • off University premises (UK and overseas) for University business, study or research purposes.

See the Health and Safety Services website to view the policy in full.

There will also be briefing sessions for the new Protocol on Drones. These take place in the Willow Terrace Training Room from noon to 1pm on 7 June (contact Katy Hargreaves to book) and 10-11am on 13 July in 2.02 Chemical and Process Engineering (contact Stephanie Day to book).
