Which 4D Virtual Reality Classroom features can you utilise in your training program? (Infographics)

Innovation is everywhere now. It is about the new way of accomplishing a goal. We’re inspired to utilise the merits of 4D VR technology to facilitate environmental training, which is unlike typical classroom training. Check with us for the demo at info@anewr.com.

The new generation momentum is coming to town

The 24/7 monitoring system, a web-based platform, 5G transmission, and real-time warning are the modern digitalisation adaptation. A remote monitoring system supported by a user-friendly platform empowers authorised users to keep an eye on the status through a spectrum of web-enabled gadgets, including smartphones and tablets even when they are away from the scene. 

The current demand for vibration monitoring sets the future improvement criterion of infrastructure redevelopment, facilitating the safe expansion work during operation hours. The complexity of the expansion project is not merely construction and demolition but also disruptive environmental impacts. Noise, vibration, dust are examples that we need to monitor to avoid the immediate harmful implications for critical operation such as in hospital. The unattended live-to-web monitoring can critically reshape life-and-death circumstances as referring to our real case study.

Another enhancement sector is about communicating the environmental impacts through visualisation. By harnessing the virtual reality (VR) with a 3-dimensional (3D) visual perspective, we can add our external idea into the simulated environment to virtual test the practicability. Thoroughly to learn the project environment, the authorities and stakeholders are effortlessly to recognise the potential externality before moving on development projects. 

The recent innovation is the 4D VR experience. Virtually being in the built environment, the user is standing at one point wearing the VR headset and holding the controller to handle the direction and the action in the scene. For example, the user audibly recognises the noise level differences upon the window open and closure by wearing the headphones.

The discovery of automated monitoring, 3D visualisation, 4D virtual reality advancement is not without reason. This is the smart city solution in mitigating environmental concerns to appraise alternatives, evaluate the effectiveness of different scenarios, and inspect the big picture of the overall design performance. Stakeholders are encouraged to express ideas and further review the project outcome with the direct digital illustration method.

Engagement concepts embedded in the workplace health and safety

Do you know? Your corporate planning matters to your corporate success. Attaining Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) introduced by the United Nations is a new norm to recognise corporate’s sustainable achievements.

According to the International Labour Organisation, workplace health and safety falls into SDGs of Good Health, Decent Work, Economic Growth, and Peace and Justice. More than a slogan or a report, sustainability aspects are necessary to nurture to support the business. Employees remain as vital human capital in an organisation. Human capital is an intangible asset. International Labour Organisation has alerted us that “the health of workers is a major determinant of productivity” because of “a vicious circle of poor health” leading to “reduced working capacity, and low productivity”.

Can you imagine the potential consequences if you lose your workforce? That costs human lives, your corporate reputation, and that could mean you are breaching the regulations. Occupational health and safety is a global focus. Hong Kong, as a Global Metropolis, has the Occupational Safety and Health Ordinance in place. The workplace is identified as “places where employees work”, including factories, construction and offices and more. Workplace health and safety is everywhere for everyone.

So, do not miss the stakeholder engagement in the issue. The issue starts with the work system design, the work procedure, the working environment, and communications. Employers, occupiers, and employees work hand in hand to achieve zero accident and pleasant working conditions.

Planning is a long-term thing; employees’ commitments to OHS is a must-have to achieve the daily safe operation. Establish channels to communicate with your workforce by utilising reliable online and offline communication technologies, activities, and events to raise awareness. Enforce safety procedures. Distribute the lesson learnt. Educate your employees to be competent.

The new way to educating employees is now on the way to 4-dimensional and virtual reality. Virtual reality immerses your employees into the replicated environment that you want to engage them to alert, such as accidental scene; 4-dimensional furnishes your employees the sensation of creating an authentic atmosphere. The changing game has already been applied to work-related training – Environmental Protection Department’s acoustic window 4D VR training is a prime example in Hong Kong. Think about it for health and safety.

What does the future of work mean to you? Materialise in occupational health and safety and produce the working environment that matters.
