Digital innovation consultancy and services provider The Boiler

Room CEO Mark Hocker said a training solution the company

had developed for a multinational mining original-equipment

manufacturer has led to a 50% reduction in the time to train its

artisans by showing trainees how to perform tasks correctly.

"This training can include safety aspects and enables learning

through doing. Another significant advantage of VR is that a

company can simulate the consequences of incorrect actions and

reinforce the importance of following standard operating

procedures."


A fall-of-ground is one of the biggest dangers in underground

mining, and The Boiler Room developed tactile gloves and vests that

allow it to immerse trainees in a simulated situation and

demonstrate the consequences of doing something wrong and,

thereby, inculcate a healthy fear so that they do not make these

mistakes underground, he pointed out.
