Hazard Identification Training and Assessment in Virtual Reality

Construction Hazard ID

VR Training & Assessment

Construction hazards are plentiful, as are the training programs that address them like OSHA-10, online courses, and various internal safety courses. Practical, immersive assessment of these hazards has not been available until now. 

The VR Construction Hazard ID Assessment is a major title in the ITI VR Industrial Skills Library which is delivered through VR Headsets any place your people are! The practical assessment can be administered by nearly anyone and covers 10 risk domains.

OperatorPRO-Icons-Shifts Pre-hire screening Test a candidate's ability to identify hazards on the construction site BEFORE you deploy them in the field.
OperatorPRO-Icons-Dashboard National Certification Being Construction Hazard ID Certified helps to assure that your team is in the best position to avoid potential pitfalls. *Updates Coming Soon!
OperatorPRO-Icons-Evaluations Job Site Orientation Safely and effectively identify and strengthen gaps in your team's knowledge of construction site hazards.
OperatorPRO-Icons-Activities Practice Best Practices Learn best practices for staging equipment, people, and resources on the job site as well as good house keeping measures to create a safer work environment.

Developed with the participation of the NSC, Bechtel, DPR Construction, GLY Construction, Kiewit, Liberty Mutual Insurance, and United Rentals, the VR Construction Hazard ID experience challenges candidates to inspect a jobsite and identify several risk domains including hand tools, lock out/tag out, lifting and rigging, dropped objects, and more.

When we originally created this VR experience with Bechtel and DPR’s innovation teams, there was immediately interest in having successful candidates receive a portable certification. Once we decided to pursue it, we wanted to find a broadly accepted, market leader in construction safety to represent the certification. NSC was at the top of our list and after a quick introduction from one of our Program Advisors to the NSC team, we knew we had a great partnership in the making.

Development & Hardware

In a January 2020 survey conducted by ITI, with 184 respondents, 67% of all respondents said that their organization would likely rely on a three-five year construction safety certification based on a VR exam, and 75% of managers and owners saw a positive benefit from such a certification.

Use Cases

The 30-minute training module has the learner navigate various construction areas containing hazards, marking any hazards he/she identifies. Before the learner leaves an area, the application will review the hazards present in the area and see if any were missed or misidentified. The learner will be shown what should be identified, and what may have been misidentified as a hazard.
