The dangers of mining operations are very well known. Inadequate training is often a root cause for many mining fatalities. Hands-on training in an actual mining environment provides only limited real-life opportunities, however virtual reality-based training can expose the workers to real-world working conditions without the associated risks. Hence there is a strong demand for Virtual Reality (VR ) in the mining industry, especially for solutions that can help in training the mining operators effectively to improve safety, increase productivity and reduce costs.
Virtual Reality (VR) training in mining allows training the entire team of mining operators, workers, managers in order to make the entire mining process safe and more effective. Training in VR makes it possible to allow teams to practice their skills before they start working in real-world mining sites.
Currently, VR is being used in numerous scenarios in the mining industry, including:
- Mine site familiarisation training
- Emergency preparedness training
- Working in Confined spaces training
- Training on equipment familiarisation & operations
- Training on machine inspection maintenance
The potential of VR in mining is truly infinite. With even more advancements in VR technologies, it will not only help mining-related companies in planning better strategies but also lead to a safer work environment for everyone involved.
