Improving safety in lane closures with drones

Sacyr Conservación has launched a pilot test using drones and 360o recordings of our operators as they close off lanes on the highway.

We are always working to guarantee health and safety on our projects and to find the best ways to improve our processes. So, Sacyr Conservación has launched a pilot test using drones and 360o recordings of our operators as they close off lanes on the highway.

We hope to improve road safety by reviewing current procedures used when closing off lanes on the road and prevent risks to our operators which might have gone unnoticed previously. 

“Lane closure is part of the daily routine in road maintenance. It is critical in terms of safety, when setting out and then removing the signage and elements. The team pulls over on the hard shoulder, then you have to get out of the vehicle, cross the road carrying heavy signs... Our staff are trained and aware, but routine can make you a bit too relaxed, and we need a new focus on risk prevention in our ongoing training” explains Simón  Maestra, (Delegate, south area)

“We have made drone and 360o camera recordings that we will use to create training content. We are getting together with operators from different centres to analyze and discuss the operation seen from the outside. By doing so, we believe that we can reach some very valid conclusions to minimize risks,” explains Simón Maestra, South Area Manager of Sacyr Conservación.

Using virtual reality, we can create custom audiovisual experiences through 360º videos that incorporate multimedia content.



“This allows our operators to actively engage and interact with the VR scene. The possibilities are tremendous because the worker can view the different operations and technical procedures from various perspectives. This allows us to engage with the worker and take action that will improve their performance as required. It is good to evolve and to put preventive actions in place,” says Marco Antonio García (Business Partner PRL Sacyr Conservación).

The idea is for the workers to see themselves, see when they pick up the signs, and when and how they cross the road, see the most critical points, so that they can perceive their own work as seen from the outside.

We have done it in Granada, on the A-44, and we plan to do it on the AP-7, in Castellón. The idea is to create a training session for all our centres, to draw conclusions and extrapolate our findings to the whole company. To create a general company-wide internal training programme.
