Inspection of a Construction Site

Fall Prevention Training in AR (Augmented Reality)

A construction site is a dangerous place! Potential hazards lie everywhere, and are likely to cause falls, the most common cause of death in the construction industry. It's critical for employees to be trained in all fall risks and anomalies to avoid injuries and fatal accidents.

Fall prevention is more than just about equipment. It also involves fall prevention mistakes that must be corrected to prevent avoidable injuries: a crack in a wall that could threaten the anchoring of a lifeline, a safety net being too short, or materials carelessly left on the ground that could cause someone to trip, etc.

Learning Objectives

This Augmented Reality simulator is designed to assist trainees in learning about safety precautions that must be followed on a construction site in order to prevent falls. They will practice what to look for while conducting an actual inspection.

Audience

New or seasoned employees who are required to work at heights - especially on roof tops.

Fall Inspection Training Scenario

This scenario is represented in photorealistic 3D visuals in Augmented Reality. It allows trainees to learn about fall prevention inspection in an immersive environment without any risk to themselves or others. The rendering is extremely realistic and is based on input from professionals. Users are able to move freely inside a simulated construction site and can inspect it from every angle. Trainees use their phone's camera to experience a life-size environment that they can replicate in their own home or office. To complete the inspection correctly, they must identify all the flaws.

This simulator uses a bird’s eye view. Trainees first observe a building under construction with several individuals at work. To start their inspection, they tap one of 3 zones where they want to land. They are then teleported into the 500 square foot top floor of the building, approximately 70 feet above ground level. They are then asked to walk around and identify 12 fall hazards that could potentially be lethal, such as a safety net being too short, a poorly anchored lifeline, a lanyard being too long, loads stored on a protection cover, etc.
