The benefits of Virtual Reality OSH training
Young and seasonal workers
Young and seasonal workers often lack skills and experience they need for the assigned work, including understanding of safety and health hazards and risks. A worker’s risk of injury is four times greater during the first month in a new job than it is after just 12 months on the job. Our software can help one to learn about the consequences of their actions and to assess risks associated with various situations without need to walk into the production space.
Security that is based on behavior. In Virtual Reality you can learn correct patterns of behavior in dangerous situations in a completely safe way. This approach includes identification, measurement and modeling of behavior, which reduces the number of accidents at work, even in situations that are too expensive or impossible to simulate in reality.
We strongly believe that our software can help you achieve high levels of OSH performance (low accident rates, building OSH culture, labour cooperation and participation, reduction of work-related stress risks, learning opportunities, etc. ) which can be translated into workplace innovation, better human performance and well-being.
In case of evacuation, fumigation or artificial fire, training of all employees is often impossible due to shift work. VR training addresses this issue and gives you the freedom to access the training whenever you need it.
A training in Virtual Reality does not have to look like a computer game. It is possible to transfer a real workplace to a virtual world with realism in mind. Realistic sounds such as alarm, time elapsing, fire spreading, smoke, lack of lighting, traffic blocks or defective fire extinguishers are just examples of factors that raise the level of realism. A sense of presence in the real place is achieved as a result.
As for the fire safety it is essential to provide the feedback to employees after the evacuation. In VR training, we can inform the participant, e.g, how long the evacuation process was, whether the decision process was correct and whether irregularities were observed.
Making OSH more attractive
Virtual Reality introduces the element of freshness, novelty and interest to the participants, which enriches the training process.
Easy to learn
Compared to traditional training, spatial visualization which you can move and interact with is deeply memorable and gives you unprecedented levels of immersion.
In Virtual Reality you can walk, squat, turn around and interact with the environment, so that it is easier for you to spot details or anomalies.
Increase employee involvement
During the session, all the distraction factors are eliminated so that the employee is fully focused on the training.
Promote good practices
In the virtual training you can test the employee’s knowledge; at the same time you can also show the correct behavior, best practices and teach the company’s safety standards.
Stopping the production and evacuation of a production hall, simulating fire events, chemical spills, fire brigades or artificial smoke generates significant costs.
We give you the possibility to map potential real-life accident situations that coincide with accident pyramid data in a company.
Through this innovative form of training we can introduce elements of competition. These can be individual or team competitions, such as rivalry between departments or subsidiaries.
