  1. The high risk work environments are mainly working at heights, Working in confined spaces and in electrical units. In such cases, it would be a wise move if companies go for a VR training in advance to detail the possible risks in work space using simulation and correspondingly make trainees practice precautions in that virtualized risk-free environment.

  2. In a normal low-risk environment, trainees would find VR training very useful in terms of space orientation and operations of complex equipment.

  3. VR training ensures more than 100% productivity.

  4. It enables engagement throughout and companies that integrated VR training like BP, Porsche have recorded a 70 % increase in retention rate.

  5. The damage causing anxiousness of the trainees while giving their first shot at machine operation in high-risk environment can be mitigated

  6. A 50% reduction in machine damage and injuries have been recorded after implementing VR training.
