Virtual reality (VR) has the ability to not only shape the way people interact with each other, but also with their environment. With its fast-developing pace, it is creating its niche in the world of safety training as well. VR has been adapted and developed to include safety training in various situations ranging from training for slips, trips, and falls, to fire safety awareness, harassment and bullying, or confined spaces.
The importance of training staff in dealing with hazardous occurrences has been well established. This is where VR training comes into the picture. A highly interactive and immersive simulation can be created with the help of gadgets like sensors, controllers, haptic gloves, and of course, the VR goggles. An example of this is a virtual fire simulation, which would attempt to stimulate the participants’ perception of sight, sound, and smell to enhance their action.
With the practical experience and numerous benefits it provides, VR is paving a clear path for itself in safety training.
Benefits of Implementing Virtual Reality in Safety Training
- Better recall: Practical experience always encourages better recall. VR training for safety will encourage the idea of actually practicing and visually recalling when needed.
- Higher involvement and individual learning: VR training gives every individual the space to learn and practice multiple times, on their own, with the help of the simulation.
- Safe simulation for dangerous situations: With VR, high risk or difficult to access environments can be recreated without compromising the safety of all individuals.
