Every day, job sites change. What was safe yesterday may be dangerous today. So how do companies like Skanska, the fifth largest construction company in the world, help their workers be more aware of unseen risks and avoid danger? Collaborating with creative VR and AR agency, OutHere, the construction company implemented a Unity-based VR experience into their standard worker-safety training program with major benefits. While Skanska also employs many traditional methods of accident-awareness training, they decided VR offered a new way to reach their employees, reduce accidents, and create safer construction sites. Hear the best practices the team learned in utilizing virtual reality to improve safety on their sites.
Understand how construction company Skanska uses VR training to put participants "at risk" in a simulated environment without endangering their lives, and how this leads to lasting behavioral change.
This session is relevant to anyone responsible for developing or implementing a safety or training program.
