VSTEP – Virtual Reality for Health and Safety training
The petrochemical industry is very dangerous to operate in, where incidents can have a devasting impact on the company, people, and employees. Due to the unique nature of the field, training professionals face challenges such as maintaining safety standards, the cost and time of staging an incident, wear and tear of equipment.
Having an effective training tool can help petrochemical personnel enhance safety preparedness before encountering dangerous situations in real life. Virtual training allows trainees to experience an immersive training experience in a controlled, risk-free environment. Ultimately, this helps reduce the risk of environmental and safety accidents and promotes a safer workplace.
