Abstract

Safety management in the construction sector is still lagging in terms of technological involvement. A new drone application was proposed as a new inspection tool for a small-scale aerial drone that will give advantages to Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) practitioners on the construction site. A fundamental research was conducted to study the Perception of Drone Application and Practicality among Environmental, Health and Safety Practitioners at Building Construction Sites in Malaysia. A self-administered questionnaire was distributed to safety practitioners in Malaysia through an online survey using Google form. The relationship between the attitudes of the users towards the drone and the practicality of the drone was analysed using a multivariate statistical method known as Multi Linear Regression (MLR). From the result, the respondents show significant positive attitude towards the practicality of the drone system for the inspection of safety, security, fire, and environmental monitoring (R 2 =0.76; p-value=0.01). There is generally a significantly good attitude of future users towards drone usage in the construction industry and the respondents show a good expectation and this is also supported by previous studies.
