Virtual Reality Headsets

Post by Tyban »

Evening all, :wave:

I recently visited an open day for an education centre where a H&S provider was advertising their courses and showing off a new virtual reality headset they had just introduced to their courses which involved a risk assessment test/assessment. The headset showed a moving 360 image of a workshop with several hazards on display and in use. I thought the headset was brilliant however conducting a risk assessment in a real environment is my preferred option as I would think that the headset use would be limited to small groups and maybe only for the more well-off training providers.

Has anyone seen and used these headsets? Thoughts.

Cheers .salut

I haven't heard of them being utilised in this way. I guess the advantage is that you could "look" around several different environments all from the comfort of the classroom.
So when the whole world is safe..............what are we going to do then?
