Industrial Safety

Learning by doing, or experiential learning, has always been recognized as a vital aspect of preparing for physical or high-risk activities due to its power to develop muscle memory. The value of interactive virtual reality for industrial safety lies in the ability to overcome classic learning barriers in a large-scale manufacturing setting. HTX has created real-life simulations that prepare workers to safely do their job at their facility.

Traditional learning by written, video, or computer-based processes involves workers passively watching videos or presentations, and then answering questions on the instructed material. The lack of realism and user engagement results in “checking the box” but does not necessarily produce a prepared and safe worker.

Immersive training puts the worker in virtual safety while experiencing the sights, sounds and steps to avoid or deal with real-life safety situations or deal with an emergency.

As immersive technologies, such as virtual reality, continue to become more prevalent within an industrial safety environment, HTX looks to partner with organizations that want to lead the way in this movement. Please contact us at collaborate@htxlabs.com if you would like to collaborate on how best to integrate immersive technologies into how your employees learn, train, and work together.
