HTC VIVE Introduces Cutting-Edge Workplace Safety Training Solution
HTC VIVE®, the leader in premium virtual reality (VR), in partnership with FreeRangeXR, today announced a new workplace safety training VR solution. ElevateXR provides in-depth training modules focused on occupational hazards and safety protocols, serving as a foundation for employee development programs. Offering three different hazard safety modules, ElevateXR features simulated real-world scenarios that test users’ knowledge of safety protocols in high-risk environments. Bundled with the VIVE Focus Plus, HTC VIVE’s enterprise-focused, all-in-one VR headset, the VIVE Focus Plus ElevateXR Kit is available now in the US on Vive.com.
Created specifically for workplace training and safety, ElevateXR encourages safe workplace behaviors by engaging trainees in realistic environments. ElevateXR accelerates learning and comprehension of critical information increasing the effectiveness of training programs and the safety of employees.
ElevateXR currently addresses three top workplace hazards: fall protection, lockout/tagout (LOTO), also known as the control of hazardous energy, and confined spaces. Each module contains three lessons that take users through the steps of navigating these complex workplace scenarios. These lessons complement existing annual certification tests, further reinforcing the importance of proper on-the-job training.
“Virtual reality is changing the way we learn, including how companies and organizations train employees and reinforce safety protocols. We developed ElevateXR to provide an all-in-one training solution that allows trainees and employees to receive real-life safety training in VR, without real-life consequences,” said Dan O’Brien, HTC Global Head of Enterprise. “Effective in accelerating training around the top workplace hazards, ElevateXR saves firms time and money while equipping their employees with the knowledge they need to stay safe on the job.”
