Virtual reality training, the way of the future for high risk jobs.

News Desk (2017) describes the life saving benefits of using virtual reality technology to help workers such as military personnel and aviation workers who cannot allow for real life mistakes. These workers use eye tracking and physiological monitoring head pieces that display replications of dangerous training environments. Workers are able to identify flawed skill sets throughout these training sessions , and then further practice and improve. I believe that virtual reality allows you to learn from mistakes and not endanger lives, as it might do in real life practice.

I chose this article to evaluate as I am interested in what the future holds for workplace health and safety practices. As a new graduate I hope to bring fresh ideas in the next 5 years to future workplace health and safety practices and hope I can be involved with virtual reality training. I believe it will make workplace training for staff more interesting thus improve memory retention of information.
