Virtuario™ – Occupational Safety Training in Virtual Reality
Make Virtuario™ a part of your company's occupational safety culture!
The Virtuario™ learning environment is available through a subscription service. You will get access to a constantly evolving and expanding library of virtual training content.
The content is designed in collaboration with customers as well as occupational safety and pedagogy experts, and updates are regularly added to the Virtuario™ training library. If you have a training need not already covered in the Virtuario™ library, we are happy to work with you in developing it — please contact us!
Virtuario™ content is available in Finnish and English by default and can be translated to support other languages. Virtuario™ learning is suitable for employees, supervisors, subcontractors and partner employees, trainees and students interested in enhancing and testing their own occupational safety skills. The content is accessible and enables training even when accessing a real work environment may be limited.
Virtuario™ gamifies safety learning, making the experience fun and engaging, and ensures that learners remember and retain the skills and know-how they have learned. To train with Virtuario™, you need a 4 × 4 m unobstructed space where the training is carried out — moving in the virtual world works just like in the real environment: you can walk around, explore the environments naturally, and reach on top of a virtual cabinet or crouch to check under a truck.
Virtuario™ is a proven and effective solution for learning
Virtuario™ is based on knowledge gained from research projects conducted at the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health on learning in virtual reality. Virtuario™ provides an effective way for practicing occupational safety in a self-directed manner in an immersive virtual environment.
In the MoSaC research project, we studied VR occupational safety learning in construction environments together with eight companies in the industry from 2018 to 2020. The project showed that VR learning can be much more effective than lecture-based learning, and it activates and motivates participants toward actively developing occupational safety and work culture.
In the SLIVeR research project, we delve deeper into the pedagogy of VR learning, the design of VR exercises, and the transfer effects of learning to occupational safety activities in the workplace from 2021 to 2023.
With Virtuario™, you can take the next step in creating a safe work environment and ensure that your employees have the necessary skills and knowledge to minimize risk and prevent accidents.
