Most rigging and materials accidents can be prevented with proper training. Senar AR simulator is one of the most powerful hands-on inspection tools, ensuring that your staff is well prepared and safe when working with equipment and hardware such as web slings, chain slings, wire rope slings, shackles, hooks, eyebolts, hoists, etc.
All rigging gear is represented in photorealistic 3D visuals in Augmented Reality that allows the trainees to learn about rigging inspection and techniques with no risk to themselves or others. The rendering is extremely realistic and is based on input from rigging professionals such as Bishop Lifting Products, a leading manufacturer and service provider for crane, rigging and oilfield applications.
Users are able to move freely around the equipment and inspect it from every angle. Trainees use the camera on their phone to experience a life-size rigging rack in their own homes or office, placing them in realistic scenarios. On-site training is no longer the only solution available to improve one's rigging inspection skills. Inspectors can choose between two hands-on training scenarios.
Training Scenario - Level 1
Trainees are given a rigging rack where they can pick and choose one by one the rigging hardware and lifting equipment that need to be examined. They may then determine if the rigging gear is acceptable to use or whether it should be thrown away after thoroughly examining it from all angles. Users are informed of the issue's location on each lifting device so that they can learn from their mistakes.
Training Scenario - Level 2
At this level, the rigging inspector is expected to justify their removal criteria when they decide that some lifting devices are not acceptable for overhead lift and must be taken out of service. To earn the most points, they need to successfully answer quizzes that require them to look in detail at chain grades, shackle markings, sling wear percentage, etc.
