NextWave VRWhy Virtual Reality?

Current safety training environments fall short of successfully educating a diverse workforce and maintaining high training retention rates. Instead, bare-minimum compliance standards continue to characterize a training curriculum delivered mostly in one language through lectures, handouts, videos, and online modules. Lack of meaningful hands-on experience leaves learners without the on-site, immersive training they require to fully recognize the scope of workplace risks and the best practices mitigating and prevent unsafe incidents. A worker’s first time driving a forklift or operating a crane should not be on-site; inexperience does not lead to the best outcomes.

Benefits of Virtual Reality:
Success with all learning styles
Eliminate risk and safety concerns
Reduce training budget
Repetition creates successful action
Effective and efficient for large and small companies
Applicable to every industry

NextWave’s Virtual Reality (VR) enhanced safety training is designed to reproduce practical scenarios in a virtual environment. The result is that we provide safe and effective guidance for situations that are too difficult, expensive, or dangerous to prepare for in the real world.

Frequently Asked Questions

What hardware do I need to use the modules?
NextWave’s VR training software requires a PC computer running Windows 7/8/10 with a minimum of NVIDIA GeForce GTX970 or AMD Radeon R9 290 video card and an HTC Vive VR system.
Where can I use VR training?
It can be housed in a dedicated training space (at least 3m x 3m) or be easily packed into a mobile training kit.
Can I substitute any other VR systems?
No. Currently, depending on modules, we support the HTC Vive VR system or the Oculus. Our future roadmap will support additional platforms.
Do I need an IT team to setup?
Nope! NextWave provides comprehensive guides to walk our users through the setup process for the equipment, software, and the actual use of the VR system.
How do I access and use each training module?
With internet connection individual training modules can be downloaded remotely. They are launched and run via Steam VR.
How many people can use the VR training at once?
Only one person can wear a VR headset at a time. By mirroring what is seen on a screen, an entire class can view the user’s progress and decision-making in real-time.
Do I need an instructor?
While we recommend the VR as an instructional tool to be used by a trainer, users can go through all modules independently and without oversight. All modules come with a user manual.
How much time is required to complete the VR training modules?
From 2 to 15 minutes, depending upon module and training objectives.
