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 from 360immersive with live-presenter, online, and simulation training allows workers to experience hazardous real-world situations without facing any of the inherent dangers. For example, to prepare for working in a confined space (trenches, silos, pipelines, etc.), using the 360immersive VR app enables the trainee to actually see and hear everything ahead, behind, to the right, to the left, above, below, and every point of the compass in-between.
360immersive VR worker safety modules are very cost-effective, as well. Workers download the app to their personal mobile phone and use an inexpensive VR headset to immerse themselves in high-intensity learning scenarios, including:
Confined space entry
Lock out, Tag out
DOT hazardous material transportation
Fall prevention and protection
Fire safety and fire watch
Advanced core compliance training
Bottle watch for supplied air systems
Hot work permitting
360immersive is one of the leading companies in the U.S. with the professional expertise to apply virtual reality technology to worker safety training. Trainees can actually see and hear everything ahead, behind, to the right, to the left, and every point of the compass in-between. This increased level of situational connectivity results in a higher level of engagement and a proven increase in lesson retention at a lower cost.
