VR Safety Skills Training

90% of employees find traditional training ineffective. Make sure your training has impact.


People are the most important asset in your business and maintaining a safe work environment is crucial to their wellbeing and success. The Luminous VR safety skills covers key induction modules that workers need to be aware of when entering industrial sites. It’s the perfect starting point for companies wanting to try VR training as a new medium, without making the commitment to bespoke content.

‘Learning by doing’ – active learning, is the most effective learning method as users gain concrete experience of their tasks.

Users can familiarise themselves and physically prepare for situations they might encounter in real-life, building up muscle memory and enhancing knowledge retention.

Luminous users experience:

  • 80% reduction in training time
  • Errors reduced to zero
  • 90% improvement in engagement

For users new to VR start with orientation mode where our friendly Lumi Bot will guide you through how to use the controllers and interact with the different types of equipment and tools for the training. Play our Lobby games to help familiarise yourself with typical interactions and build confidence learning in VR.

PPE & Work Permit Procedures

The first part to any induction is selecting the correct PPE for the task. The module will take the user through which PPE is needed and the correct work permit process.

Confined Space training

Equip yourself with the correct safety equipment and processes to safely check and then enter a confined space.  Take Gas readings, learn the correct safety signage & recognise alarms.

Working at Heights

Working at heights is one of the most common risks found across industrial sites. Learn the correct process and ways to safely ascend ladders and scaffolding. Be aware, if you carry it out incorrectly in practice or assessment mode be ready for a shock!

Hot work High / Low Energy

There are many types of hot work procedures carried out in industrial locations. This module will introduce you to the correct work permit procedure, potential hazards including cutting, tripping or chemicals. The user then must carry out a hard task of either grinding or removing insulation.

Application Features:

All Luminous off the shelf content comes with many advanced features built in these include:

3 Core Training Modes:

Assisted learning.

Assisted Learning – Assisted learning is like having your own personal mentor. Trainees are shown the correct process guided by audio narrative, visual ques, and highlights. They can practice tasks as much as they like, building muscle memory until tasks become second nature.

Practice mode.

Practice Mode – In practice mode all guidance is turned off and the trainees must recall the full process. If users carry out a step incorrectly, they’re notified they have done it wrong or in some instances shown a consequence before being put back a step to try again. This process reinforces learning, where everything must be memorised so users can progress to the next step.

Assessment mode.

Assessment Mode – The place to put all learning and knowledge into practice. Assessment mode tests users on each procedure where they must carry out the full module correctly from memory. All assessment steps and data are logged creating a digital training record.

Multiuser Mode

Up to 10 students can simultaneously enter the virtual space. An instructor can monitor the training via our desktop app and has access to many controls to manage students, make different users active, highlighting, hiding or muting them.


Ensure everyone has access to the same training, safety skills supports 10 different languages: English Dutch French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish & Hungarian

In multiuser mode different students can activate different languages at the same time, this includes full translation of audio narrative and all user menus and buttons so users can learn wherever they are, in their strongest language.

Interactive Hand Menu:

At any point in the training a student can bring up a hand menu to see which step they are on. In assisted learning they can also jump forwards or backwards through the procedure so they can perfect specific steps.
