This presentation discusses the various industries currently using drones for increased efficiency and safety.  Also discussed are the current FAA regulations required to operate commercially and the best practices involved to ensure safe operation.  Additional topics include how BWC is using drones and the types of assistance they can provide to Ohio employers interested in creating their own drone program.

Additionally, the program provides information to Ohio employers on how to implement UAS within their own businesses in a safe and responsible way. Josh is a certified remote Pilot in Command (FAA Part 107 remote pilot with a small UAS certification). Josh also works as a Digital Forensic Analyst within the Special Investigations Department and is a 17 year BWC employee.
