Virtual Reality Headsets

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.
