The newly-released VR program can also simulate critical scenarios that would be expensive or impractical to create with traditional training regimens. And, with augmented reality, infrequent high-risk events can be experienced and overcome ahead of time.

According to a 2019 survey from an OSHA and EHS training provider, utility workers are more than 50% more likely to express both a need for training and fear of injury than workers in comparative industries. Investing in workplace safety training results in a safer, more efficient, and more motivated workforce.

VR can be used as a visual aid for onboarding training. Utilities installation and maintenance presents a unique set of workplace challenges, and with virtual training, new hires can see and fix common problems and establish good PPE habits in a fun and engaging way. Rather than classroom training, utility workers can experience gamified and interactive visual learning.

The software can be designed to demonstrate how different weather conditions affect visibility and create hazardous conditions. Employees can be trained to correctly identify workplace hazards and the corresponding corrective and reporting actions.

VR can also be used to demonstrate proper emergency procedures in the event of heavy equipment malfunction, electrocution, or falls. These events can be difficult to simulate in traditional training without risk to operators or equipment, but with VR technology can be overcome step-by-step according to proper procedure.
