"Experience is the best teacher..." this phrase perfectly illustrates our vision of what teaching and learning are all about. The VR-based training courses developed by Immersive Factory leverage the benefits of active learning and give trainees a leading role by raising awareness of health, safety and environmental issues. Using a dedicated web platform developed by Immersive Factory, industrial firms will be able to download, at their own convenience, a catalogue of innovative EHS exercises, developed in a virtual environment as close as possible to reality.
According to the French National Research and Safety Institute (INRS), with regard to training related to on-site circulation or driver behavior: "On-site travel accounts for nearly one third of all work-related accidents and causes damaged equipment and lost time".
The EHS training courses offered to industrial firms and their teams are designed to be part of the firm’s safety and sustainable development policy. They aim to contribute to the reduction of work-related accidents involving employees.
According to Dale's Cone of Experience, trainees remember 90% of what they do (and only 20% of what they hear). That is why Immersive Factory has pioneered an innovative range of VR-based EHS courses that engages all trainees directly with the learning process.
Once immersed in one of the many life-like virtual environments, teams can actively learn and engage with best EHS practices: working at height, eco-friendly actions, risk control, movement & posture, on-site circulation and risks behind the wheel...
VR-based EHS training provides an innovative way for managers to influence employee behavior, and to debrief with them objectively after each session in order to initiate change. Above all, it makes it possible to:
Virtual reality (VR) is an innovative technology that makes it possible to achieve ambitious training goals, such as recreating work situations with maximum realism – situations that are too dangerous to simulate in reality, or not easily understood with a drawing or 3D model.
To lastingly reduce risk behaviors in the workplace, Immersive Factory seeks to democratize access to VR-based EHS training via an online platform where every exercise can be downloaded independently by industrial firms. Some twenty EHS themes are already available, developed with EHS experts in partnership with major industrial groups:
A dedicated customer area provides access to learners' statistics, administrative documents, and early notification when new exercises are placed online.
