The story

The programme uses VR software and headsets so employees can see a job site and virtually perform tasks. Training and assessment can take place at a Danos or customer office rather than involving travel offshore or to a job site.

Eric Danos, owner and executive over human resources, finance, safety and land, told VRWorldTech in an interview for the next issue of VRWorldTech Magazine: “We are using it [VR] to train and assess the workforce of tomorrow. We are also exploring the technology in ways we didn’t imagine at first, like improving public speaking.”

“Augmented reality solutions are being tested for remote assistance which allows employees at a work-site to engage with experts anywhere in the world. This on-demand access to information and support is significantly changing the way we think about work.”
