Virtual Reality: Our Innovative Training Solution
How it Works
Each device comes equipped with a working basket for operators to stand in, virtual reality goggles and a control panel with joysticks and switches that mimic those on real machines.
Virtual reality training simulators create a controlled environment for operators to train in, increasing personal safety for new operators and saving significant amounts of money lost to damages of equipment and infrastructure.
The VR simulation can be used in addition to our IPAF (International Powered Access Federation) training. Although participants cannot be put into high-risk situations initially on real machines, the VR simulator allows the instructor to expose operators to difficult situations and if it ends going wrong, there are no consequences for the health and safety of the trainees.
Additionally, this innovation provides operators with intermittent opportunities to refresh their training, which is particularly useful if an operator has not worked with a machine for some time, but is still in the time frame between required IPAF training. Better trained operators are then able to work more comfortably on the various machinery, increasing project efficiency.
