Prepare warehouse workers to safely recognize safety and health risks
Creating a culture of safety requires every employee in the workplace to be knowledgeable in identifying hazardous situations from chemicals to faulty equipment that could pose safety risks or OSHA penalties. PIXO VR Hazard Recognition training challenges employees to use and apply their knowledge of OSHA general industry standards to locate dangerous health and safety risks and make corrections where appropriate. This hazard safety training puts employees in control to reduce workplace hazards and meet safety requirements.
What You'll Learn
This hazard recognition training will test the following hazard knowledge:
- Protection – Properly donning the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for the workplace environment
- Identification – Hazard recognition including properly identifying and classifying potential hazards
- Correction – Recommending corrective actions for identified hazards
Workers will be able to review their hazard safety training score and refer back to OSHA documentation on the hazards that they incorrectly classified or failed to appropriately control or correct.
The VR Experience
Participants in this virtual reality training scenario will have access to two different hazardous warehouse environments—a traditional storage warehouse and one storing chemicals. Once the warehouse environment is chosen, the user is taken to a preparation room with PPE. The trainee must inspect and properly apply the safety equipment. They can then enter the warehouse and begin their hazard identification. Users face unique hazards randomized from millions of possible workplace configurations. Each item selected by the user must be identified according to their training. Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) are available for employees to review. Once the employee has finished their assessment, they leave the warehouse. The worker can then reenter the warehouse where items are colored red, yellow, or green to indicate which hazards they identified correctly and can access the information to review errors. Depending upon employer requirements for the hazard assessment, it may be possible to retry the VR simulation as needed.
