DETROIT — The virtual reality safety training company Pixo VR announced it had released a new virtual reality-based safety compliance training module for the requirements of the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA).
The company said the latest from Pixo’s library of licensable VR training modules provides an immersive, repeatable experience that not only demonstrates OSHA safety requirements, but also reinforces the importance of compliance.
Created using OSHA General Industry Standards, the module will both reinforce and assess the skills necessary for the 10-hour and 30-hour OSHA course completions, and help prevent injuries.
“Training programs increase worker knowledge of occupational safety and help workers avoid on-the-job accidents, injury, and even death,” said Sean Hurwitz, Pixo VR CEO. “Still, even OSHA-certified employees can miss or ignore hazards that they encounter while working. PIXO’s VR OSHA Training module gives trainees access to hundreds of real-life training scenarios, which would be near impossible to recreate efficiently or cost-effectively through typical training methods. It is a powerful tool to help employees reinforce and refresh their safety skills.”
Pixo’s VR OSHA training takes place in a fully rendered and photo-realistic three-dimensional training environment, where an assortment of activities are available, including a safety sweep, a root cause investigation, and emergency response. Each immersive scenario contains unique characteristics, equipment, and opportunities for risk. The training and assessment activities are specifically designed to challenge workers on their knowledge of OSHA safety regulations and compliance. A randomizing feature presents elements that are unique to each training session, promoting retention and not memorization.
With Pixo’s proprietary multi-participant technology, trainees can collaborate with others online and in real-time, working together to make their work spaces safe. In-depth reporting and analytics features are available to assess individual and collective employee performance, monitor skills and identify areas for further training.

The company also says its proprietary technology significantly reduces upfront cost, optimizes performance, and reduces sickness-causing lag.
