Digital First approach to Work place safety using VR

To ensure a safe working environment, providing your people with opportunities to develop the skills they need for their role is key. You also need to confirm they have mastered those skills. To check this, your assessments need to be as realistic as possible so they can relate to them and subsequently be able to quickly use what they’ve learned. This helps you create the productive workforce you need and helps towards meeting your compliance obligations.

How can VR help?

Virtual Reality (VR) will enable you to create compelling learning and assessment experiences that are engaging for your learners, are relevant to real work situations and provide a more accurate reflection of whether an individual has acquired the skills they need.

5 key reasons to use VR for learning and assessment

  1. VR helps with on the job learning
    Since the average worker has only 24 minutes per week to learn new things other than doing their job, any knowledge gaps they might have need to be dealt with at the point of need. Having snippets of scenarios available to participate in, allows the employee to practice before doing it for real.
  2. An authentic experience
    When we use VR, our brains think we are doing the activity for real, so we tend to learn and remember far more than just working through a paper exercise.
  3. Try many times before doing something for real
    Experiences are captured once and used many times, giving everyone a consistent environment, and the potential of running various scenarios. Building confidence and enhancing adaptability through VR helps develop core skills that stay with the employee.
  4. Be inventive, use imagination
    Changing the perception of training activities to experiences brings a more efficient training experience.
  5. Measure compliance
    Great training is the key to business success, having the analytics to show that a person is competent not just guessing answers is a big bonus in today’s compliance world.
