Virtual Reality
for Safety Training

When working in hazardous or industrial environments, it’s critical to make employee safety a priority. Properly training employees for rare, dangerous and unexpected incidents can ensure their safety in the workplace. Virtual Reality training solutions, offered by Oberon Technologies, allow organizations to train employees in dangerous scenarios without ever putting people or equipment in harm’s way. Immersive, realistic virtual scenarios provide the perfect environment to practice skills and gauge emotional reactions without any real risk.

Benefits of Virtual Reality Training

Our fully immersive, interactive solutions bring entertainment-level VR to organizations. Utilizing sense-memory training techniques, we can improve learning retention, reduce training accidents and improve employee satisfaction, while saving your organization on costs due to equipment shut-downs, production delays, personnel down time, and travel expenses. A 2020 PwC study shows employees completed VR programs up to 4 times faster than in-person trainings and 1.5 times faster than e-learning. In addition, VR training results in a retention rate of up to 80% one year after training, compared to 20% just one week after traditional training.

TYPICAL USE CASES

  • Hazard identification
  • Compliance training
  • Skills and environment screening

Industries Using Virtual Reality

Some jobs are innately hazardous; However, all jobs have some safety risks, such as fires, falling objects and electric shock. Ensuring your employees stay safe requires training on proper procedures and knowledge of dangerous environments. Of course, during training, you never want to put an employee in danger, yet it’s best to gauge both tactical and emotional response to learn most effectively. Virtual Reality training environments provide the perfect solution. Employees can experience triggering a fire or bolt of electricity but never risk their life. For example, in a fully immersive VR environment, trainees can locate a fire extinguisher in a smokey room and avoid unexpected falling objects, or scale a tall ladder to find the emergency switch. Practicing in realistic environments allows trainees to develop sensory and muscle memory for tasks, which can increase safety when faced with real-world events. You can also use VR to help ensure employees know how to select and put on proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) or lock and tag out electrical equipment to avoid hazards before they occur.
