 Using Virtual Reality in Training
One of the biggest safety challenges many industrial companies face is how to train employees to manage the potential dangers of their work in a way that is clear and memorable.
GTE is addressing this challenge through the use of technology, first developing a safety-based video game called “Golden Rules” in 2018. Now the company has
added even more innovation to its training regimen
by developing customized virtual reality modules so employees can simulate a variety of operational scenarios to sharpen their skills and learn how to prevent or respond to safety incidents, without having to worry about the real-world consequences of making a mistake. Employees can choose from a number of modules such as hand injuries, driving, confined spaces or air quality.
