Virtual Reality Training Solutions

NextWave’s Virtual Reality (VR) enhanced safety training reproduces practical scenarios in a virtual environment. This means NextWave Safety can provide safe and effective training for occupational risks that are too dull, difficult, asset-intensive, or dangerous to prepare for in a traditional classroom environment. 

Why VR?

“All knowledge of reality starts from experience.” Albert Einstein 

Current safety training environments fall short on successfully educating a diverse workforce and maintaining high training retention rates. Instead, bare-minimum compliance standards continue to characterize a training curriculum delivered mostly in one language through lectures, handouts, videos, and online modules. Lack of meaningful hands-on experience leaves learners without the on-site, immersive training they require to fully recognize the scope of workplace risks and the best practices to mitigate and prevent unsafe incidents. A worker’s first time driving a forklift or operating a crane should not be on-site; inexperience does not lead to the best outcomes.

Benefits of Virtual Reality

Increased student engagement 

Put your trainees front and center into the training experience to engage their senses and capabilities like never before.

Improved content retention 

VR provides memorable training experiences that help the content to stick long after traditional training has been forgotten.

Pyramid of learning effectiveness, adapted from Dale Edgar, 1969 

Cost-effective training 

Avangrid renewables estimate to save hundreds of thousands of dollars in travel and practical training costs, all while training their new technicians 65% faster on 25+ wind turbine models.

Reduced training times 

UConn Health found senior surgical residents learned 570% faster using VR.

Safe, repeatable interactions 

Lead to muscle memory and behavior change. For instance, Hilton's usage of VR training for its team members produced an 87% change in behavior.

Actionable data insights 

From user successes and failures, to decision making, hand motions, eye tracking, and even voice recognition, VR will drive a new level of training assessment and feedback.

Frequently Asked Questions

What hardware do I need to use the modules?

NextWave currently supports the HTC Vive / Vive Pro / Vive Pro Eye and Oculus Quest / Quest 2 / Quest for Business headmounted displays.

How do I access and use each training module?

VR module access is dependent on which system is being supported. This is usually as easy as sending a downloadable link or .apk file.

Where can I use VR training?

Users can get going with VR wherever their training takes place, be it a classroom space, onboarding area, or even a break room. Mobile headsets are especially well suited to inclusion wherever and whenever training is conducted.

How many people can use the VR training at once?

Only one person can wear a VR headset at a time. By either including multiple headsets in the training space, or mirroring the VR feed to an external monitor, a larger group and even an entire class can participate in the VR experience at any one time. 

How much time is required to complete the VR training modules?

From 2 to 15 minutes per person, depending upon the module and training objectives. 

Do I need an instructor?

While we recommend the VR as an instructional tool to be used by a trainer, users can go through all modules independently and without oversight. All modules come with a user manual. 

Do I need an IT team to setup?

Nope! NextWave provides comprehensive guides to walk our users through the setup process for the equipment, software, and the actual use of the VR system.
