Occupational health and safety in virtual reality

Application of virtual reality technology to health and safety education

Virtual reality training has an undeniable number of benefits. In addition to the autonomous and contactless approach, which proved to be very valuable during the covid-19 pandemic, these include, for example:

  • 3x faster learning process
  • autonomous solution that does not require training staff (saves supervisory time)
  • 30% increase in the quality of routine work
  • allows you to experience hard-to-simulate scenarios
  • facilitates training coordination and reduces training costs in the long term.

With the help of VR, it is possible to train and train employees effectively, cheaply and without language and other barriers, which are successfully broken down by using this technology. From the essence of VR training, we can assume a reduction in the number of work accidents in the range of 40 - 60 percent.


Currently, there is a trend of modern technology in all directions, including occupational health. It is therefore desirable to implement new modern approaches in the prevention of risks of injury to workers as a result of accidents at work or occupational diseases and to put into practice a functioning occupational health and safety education and training system that is directly linked to occupational health and financial impacts. accidents and occupational diseases.



At present, there is a clear trend of digitization and new modern technologies in all directions. Virtual reality (VR) is a new trend.

Our goal was to create a health and safety training system. For better efficiency and usability of the solution, we decided to create both possibilities of using the VR, ie. VR application, both in 2D and complex, mobile version.

The first platform created within the OSH education system was the mobile VR itself, focused on the use of VR glasses. Since we were looking for a solution that would be simple, we chose the All-in-one solution.

Another training scenario is the handling of sharp objects such as needles, syringes and others that are commonly contacted by healthcare professionals. Part of the training, the scenario is the person who accompanies us throughout the story and draws our attention to the essential instructions supplemented by safety requirements in the real environment.

The scenario created by us is focused on the unfortunate injury of the helper and the subsequent handling of the needle, disinfection and treatment of the injection site, as well as instructions to whom the event should be reported and what examinations must be completed from a preventive point of view. Attention to procedures, reports and examinations is a very important step, as several surveys show that both nurses and doctors do not report almost one third of injuries.

The first scenario, and at the time of the covid-19 pandemic, a very important scenario for staff training is the behavior of a person entering a specialized infectious unit, such as the covid-19 unit for patients with disease.

The fourth scenario we have created is focused on training employees how to behave in the field of fire safety in the workplace and how to act in the event of a fire. In addition to the most important tasks in the event of a fire, employees should also receive clear instructions on how to behave as risky as possible, both in the event of a false alarm and in the event of a crisis situation where a fire has already occurred.


About project

The main objective of the project is to make OSH education more effective by means of an OSH training system and virtual reality. A series of software will be developed to train employees in OSH, especially in specific areas of health care and, to some extent, in social services.
