Working safely on offshore platforms is very important, but it is difficult to train on land. That is why energy company BP uses VR training to train employees efficiently and onshore.
In the so-called ‘immersive simulation environment’ , personnel learn complex procedures in a safe environment, so that personnel can safely practice with important tasks. The staff learns to communicate well and to remove ‘human errors’. BP optimizes training sessions by analyzing which training component shows the most mistakes.
The company has now successfully trained thousands of employees, making work on the drilling platforms safer. The VR safety training courses are so successful at BP that they are also using virtual reality in other projects.
