Unskilled laborers engaged in construction works do not generally follow safety precautions, which puts their safety at stake. The hazardous practice, occurring due to a lack of awareness, results in significant losses to life, time and material. The traditional mode of on-site job training was not only expensive and time- consuming but was hardly catering to the safety needs of the workers. These factors prompted a major construction company to partner with us to help them bring a change in the way people are trained, in a manner that is cost-efficient and impactful.
Working closely with the managers and engineers of this company, we designed the most engaging VR experience that clearly demonstrated the safety procedures to be followed on-site by emulating real-life scenarios. People experiencing this found the training to be so immersive that they realized their lapse in following certain vital safety precautions, which could have potentially led to several near-death scenarios. Experience makes a man perfect they say, and this form of experiential training has been found to be more effective than the one rendered through written or video material.
