Safer and more efficient manufacturing

Manufacturing presents unique challenges for traditional training where knowing and being able to perform correct operational procedures are vital to ensure a safe environment.

VR training is especially well suited to manufacturing where participants can practice procedures and safely experience performing emergency operations.

Create a safer workplace

A modern manufacturing environment brings humans and machines together in close contact.  

Workers need to be aware of both their surroundings, colleagues and the machines working around them. As machines typically perform heavy-lifting and tasks at high-speed, being familiar with their operation and emergency procedures is vital to ensure a safe environment.

VR training allows workers to experience both the environment, procedures and interactions with accurate models of machines.

The learn-by-doing enabled by VR training provides participants more confidence to apply learned skills and improve safety.
”The National Safety Council (NSC) estimates over 70M workdays are lost every year due to workplace injuries - excluding time lost on the day of the injury, time required for further medical treatment or check-ups following the injured person’s return to work."

Increase operational efficiency

In rapidly changing production lines and manufacturing driven by real-time demand, providing workers with the up-to-date skills they need creates significant business disruption.

VR training radically reduces training time - up to 4x faster than traditional classroom training and with massively higher confidence to apply training.

Together with reduced training times, VR training can also eliminate the need to travel - a major source of disruption and cost. Remote training can be performed anywhere, giving immediate access to fresh knowledge that can be readily applied.

Emergency-ready workforce

Following operational procedures in the right sequence, when encountering a real-life emergency scenario, presents a major challenge for traditional training.

Traditional training can only provide a theoretical understanding and provides no insight into how well learning will be applied in high-pressure scenarios.

The immersive nature of VR training can place workers in simulated emergency scenarios and trigger the same chemical and emotional response in the body as a real-life emergency situation.

Emergency procedures can be both learned and accessed in a safe and controlled environment, enabling participants to rely on self-developed automatic responses, saving valuable time and ensuring operations are performed correctly.
