Welcome to a talk that shows the power of VR to start and develop a long-term behavioral change.
For companies like Skanska, the fifth largest construction company in the world, helping their workers being more aware of unseen risks and avoiding danger is of utmost importance.
In this talk Tania Sjöberg, Project Manager and behaviour scientist at Skanska and Peder Sjöberg, founder at OutHere will present the project Step into Stafety; a project with the main goal to reduce accidents and create safer construction sites.
While still employing many traditional methods of accident-awareness training, Skanska has now been in collaboration with the VR/AR specialists from OutHere to implement a series of VR experiences into their standard worker-safety training program. With experts from both the production and education departments at Skanska, OutHere has built a custom VR software platform, designed to enable precise relocation of real world construction sites and situations. With this platform it is possible to design, develop and roll out a number or training scenarios over time, that focuses on various health hazards common within construction site environments. Since the scenarios are both realistic and engaging they will leave the users with feelings, impressions and memories that have the power to instigate long-term positive behavioural change.
The talk will be held in Swedish with English subtitles and Q&A
