Training with VR can enhance engagement, understanding and has the potential to reduce costs by removing the need for personnel and instructors to travel to a site or facility.
In addition, it can allow users to experience, and train for, hazardous operations that cannot be performed or replicated in real life.
First Competence’s preferred VR headset is wireless, which removes the need to be tethered to a computer and can be updated remotely from any location with a Wi-Fi connection.
The team has already produced the following fully immersive interactive VR environments:
These allow the user to experience, and become familiar with, an environment, along with learning routes and identifying hazardous areas and moving equipment.
These virtual environments include dropped objects, incidents, accidents and emergency response escape routes that are set-up to enable lessons to be learned, enhance understanding and to practice procedures.
Training and assessments
These are used to immerse the user into a role in a lifting operation, which then delivers instructions and allows the user to practice procedures. Alternatively, it is used to measure compliance, ability and knowledge, as well as employees’ existing competence.
