Safety Training, Reimagined

The Challenge: UK’s leading supply chain company wanted training for three situations that were identified as its biggest risk areas in warehouses and during deliveries—cage falls, drop trailers, and red-light pull-offs. The company tried training on these topics before but it never really made any significant impact or improvements in the rate of incidents. Traditional training methods were followed including pdfs, handouts, slide presentations, etc. 

The Solution: Immersive training content using 360 videos and interactivity was created using the CenarioVR authoring tool. Staff doubled up as actors during video production and the content was delivered via its LMS. Mobile learning was enabled for the convenience of individual learners.

The Impact: The training created an engaging and authentic experience for its learners. The company witnessed an increase in course completion rates combined with a significant reduction in risk incidents after the training program was rolled out.
