How Immersed is your Training?
Check Out this Up and Coming Technology: Virtual Reality
Over the years, emerging technologies and needs have molded safety training into the front-runners you know today as streaming video, interactive online, and instructor-led training. And now there's a new format gaining momentum... have you heard about virtual reality? Get ready, folks, because it's not just for gamers anymore. Virtual reality safety training could be hitting mainstream safety shelves soon.
The idea behind virtual reality is to take training a step further to really immerse trainees in a variety of scenarios that they are likely to encounter on the job. This way, they can practice how their skills, responses, and actions affect outcomes - all in a safe environment.
How does virtual reality work exactly? Just like in some video games, the technology provides a virtual environment that causes the user to immerse themselves in a 360 degree virtual world by using sight, sound, and sometimes motion to provide a realistic experience. Depending on your industry and training needs, virtual reality can bring some real benefits to your overall safety strategy:
- Higher content relevance
- Takes hands-on to a new level
- Better snapshot of skills
- Less damage to real equipment
