AEM Thinking Forward Podcast - Ep. 21 - Cat's VR Construction Training
Check out the latest episode of the AEM Thinking Forward Podcast, produced by Podcamp Media!
Statistics show that up to 90 percent of construction job site accidents are caused by unsafe behavior, not conditions. However, according to Justin Ganschow of Caterpillar Safety Services, worksite rookies and veterans alike can benefit from learning critical safety lessons in a controlled, virtual reality (VR) environment.
In this episode, Ganschow takes AEM inside the Cat Safety VR program, including a memorable hands-on demo, and explains the lessons that other equipment manufacturers can take away from the program’s success—like why workers who are trained on VR systems are more likely to remember their training than those who learn in a traditional classroom setting.
