Vorys Partner Allen Rutz spoke at the Ohio Transportation Engineering Conference (OTEC) on October 29-30, 2019. The title of the presentation was, “Droning on About Ethics: Elements of an Ethical and Effective Employee Drone Policy.” The ability of drones to provide reliable and cost effective construction site analysis, bridge inspection, accident and disaster scene assessment, and the like has resulted in governments and private companies entrusting these aircraft to their skilled employees. To minimize risks, public and private entities using drones should implement an ethical and effective Drone Usage Policy tailored to the operations being conducted. This presentation outlined the key elements of such a policy, with a focus on the ethical obligations of engineers and surveyors operating within the framework of FAA rules and state and local privacy and cybersecurity laws.
