What is Virtual Reality?

Virtual Reality in simple terms is a digital environment created to simulate real life or fantasy situations. When it comes to virtual reality training, participants are emersed (totally involved) into a safe, controled and managed reality or environment. By displaying this new environment through the use of a full head set with sight and sound control, the participant experiences the controled situation without regard for the physical world. 

Virtual reality is being used in many companies and in many situations around the world. Organizations use VR to provide enhanced training and safe habit forming actions in their employees.

For more information on what VR is, check out the UK Virtual Reality Society.

Virtual Forklift uses a fully emersive VR environment to teach new forklift operators how to safely operate a forklift without the cost and dangers associated with hands on forklift training. New operators can also be safely trained in a shorter time period than with traditional methods without the risk. For experienced operators, building good safety habits can be a benifit of a VR training system.

ROI on a VR Investment

Virtual reality is being used by companies of all sizes to reach the new workforce of today along with building good safety habits with your current workers. With a society that is deeply tied to digital devices, the acceptance of VR training solutions is on the rise. Companies have begun to reap the rewards of VR training, resulting in a better trained worker. 

In some cases the ROI on VR training can be as much as 300%. Intel uses VR to train their workforce on repetitive operations and by immersing  the worker in a structured environment, the translation to the physical work floor is immediate. 

Companies like GE, Tesla and Bridgestone are all using Virtual Forklift simulators to build safe operating habits in their forklift workforce as well as training on custom forklift attachments used at their facilities.

Enterprise customers can build a comprehensive training program around our customizable OSHA train the trainer program and our exclusive custom web based forklift safety training system.  Designed for corporate on boarding and continued forklift safety training this integrated solution goes beyond OSHA standards and delivers the best operator training solution possible. 

Our unique educational program also utilizes a similar platform, where both online and brick and mortar schools can provide a comprehensive web learning environment to their students with either an in-school forklift simulator or a specialized program at one of our regional training centers. This program is also available to staffing agencies, unions and forklift training companies that want to enhance their offerings with branded solutions.

Call today to build your custom forklift training program.



Our training programs have always used the standard videos, PowerPoint presentations and general hands on operator evauations and training techniques, but these programs required new operators to spend weeks of operational safety training and took experienced instructors off the floor. Now with our VR program combined with forklift safety training, we can forklift safety train operators in days with higher safety results overall. 

This is the best investment in our training program in years! Even experienced operators are building good habits and driving safer in our facilities.
