Safety is No Accident

In response to the expectations of cheap and high quality energy, the Company strives for raising the effectiveness and optimizing the production costs, maintaining high standards of environment protection, as well as health and safety issues.

As a key partner in building the energy security of Poland, the client asked us to develop a VR mine training app which decreases the number of underground accidents. One of their miners entered the transmission belt, which unexpectedly moved, grabbed him and threw in a machine that smeared his leg, causing death.

The purpose of our application is to reflect the conditions of this situation in VR and to create a training which is intended to teach miners the correct order of performing security activities.

Education is not preparation for life, education is life itself

The app prepared by our team allowed the client to avoid expensive consequences of human errors. They teach them how to avoid mistakes and how to know what to look out for. At the end of each VR mine training session, all steps are to be collected in a report: showing the miner all good and bad choices.

There is also a possibility for an ‘exam session’, where all tips and instructions are hidden - forcing participant to provide the right order by they own. Such solution should be mandatory for all workers in order to avoid employee reluctance due to missing knowledge (as well as to avoid worst-case scenarios, including death).

VR mine safety training decreases the cost of training by eliminating the necessity of going 700 m down the mine (which costs 30 min one way and can distract other miners). The application successfully facilitates every health and safety training until this day.
