Improving Worker Safety Training With Cost-Effective Virtual Reality Technology
Protecting the life and health of the people who work for you is not just a smart, humane thing to do, it’s the law. Nonetheless, according to OSHA, 12 workers die each day from workplace accidents in the United States.
The best way to prevent these fatalities, as well as any nonfatal injuries, while controlling your worker’s comp costs, is through a thorough, multiplatform training program in which employees become familiar with the equipment they use, the situations they may face, and the safety procedures they must follow.
Incorporating a virtual reality (VR) module with live-presenter, online, and simulation training allows adult learners to experience hazardous real-world situations without facing any of the inherent dangers. For example, to prepare for working in a confined space (trenches, manholes, storage bins, etc.), using a 360immersive VR app will enable the trainee to actually see and hear everything ahead, behind, to the right, the left, above, below, and every point of the compass in-between.
Examples of scenario-based training content we have captured or are in the process of creating includes:
- Forklift Safety
- Fall prevention and protection
- Lockout/TagoutHearing protection
- Toolbox talksSlips, trips, and falls
- Advanced core compliance training
- Bottle watch for supplied air systems
- Hot work permitting
- HAZMAT safety
360immersive is one of the leading companies in the U.S. with the professional expertise to apply virtual reality technology to worker safety training. The increased level of situational awareness and realism that this technology affords results in a higher level of engagement and an increase in lesson retention – resulting in a significant return on investment for your training dollars.
