ALS Safety simulator

13. August 2018 | Comments (0)

Riwal UK’s training division ALS Safety has taken delivery of a new virtual reality aerial work platform training simulator.

The simulator, developed by Serious Labs of Canada, combines scissor lift and aerial boom lift modules to provide operator skills training. ALS is now offering Virtual Reality aerial work platform training to customers across the UK, alongside its IPAF, PASMA, CSCS courses and other training.

The simulator has 18 scissor lift training modules, and 16 boom lift modules with scenarios that include flat and rough terrain. Detailed feedback is provided about the operator's performance, showing weakness and strengths.

ALS managing director Darren Verschuren said: “The quality of the VR simulations is impressive and the operational detail, in terms of how a platform moves and behaves, is very realistic. ALS Safety is keen to stay at the forefront of powered access training technology, and this innovation will help us do that, both in terms of promoting working at height safety and productivity. VR will add exciting new options to the training we can offer and is already generating a lot of interest from our clients. As such, we believe VR has a strong future in working at height training.”

“We will be pleased to share our experience of using VR training with IPAF to help develop use of the technology across powered access industry. There is evidence that VR enhances engagement in training, which must be a good thing. It is particularly appealing to younger people, the Millennials, who have grown up with computer gaming technology. The training scenarios are appropriate for beginners and experienced operators to allow them to take their skills to the next level. Just as in the aviation industry, the simulator enables operators working at height to practice tasks and develop skills and muscle memory without exposure to any risk. VR is also ideal for training operators how to work under power lines, or at steep inclines. They become extremely aware of their environment and learn the safest way to manage tasks. Although we will always provide physical training, this is an incredible training tool. No one ever comes out of the simulator without saying ‘this is amazing!’”
