From virtual reality entertainment to VR safety training, the computer-generated environment has definitely become a practical tool for industries. One of the latest successful uses of the technology is displayed by the Royal Mail which utilized interactive, simulated experiences to train its postal workers to avoid dog attacks.
VR safety training was beneficial in a number of ways to the company. For one, it was cost-effective. Secondly, it was able to capture the attention of people in the organization who "didn't take anti-dog attack training seriously." While previously, the precautionary measures were delivered via a video that rendered the receiver of information passive, this contemporary VR safety training simulation isolates and engages the individual. This contributes to information retention rates and overall awareness.
