Safety is of the utmost importance across many vertical markets. For instance, the energy industry is increasingly turning to simulation technology for safety training.
As one example, Attensi created a solution for energy firm Equinor that is a mobile game-based safety simulator training program. For Equinor, “Always Safe” is an initiative for its workforce of 21,000 employees in 30 countries. The 3D simulation, along with learning modules, is meant to teach workers safety best practices by challenging them to do gamified scenarios. Nearly nine out of 10 employees say the simulation are highly accurate to their day-to-day operations.
Here is how this can help in energy:
- Create a risk-aware culture across an organization through a challenging and engaging program.
- Improve safety competencies throughout an organization.
- Encourages repetition, which ensures the lessons and behaviors become second nature for workers.
Looking to the future, simulations such as this will allow workers to put their safety training into practice to ensure mistakes don’t lead to real-world injuries or equipment damage. At the end of the day, the objective is to get everyone home safely to their families.
