Effectiveness of Construction Safety Hazards Identification in Virtual Reality Learning Environment

t b a

Abstract


Enactment of Occupational Safety and Health Act (1994) and aggressive efforts have been taken to ensure the safety of workers in the construction industry. This study employs an experimental study. Three hundred trainees divided into four groups, and data collections involve 2 phases which the first level require training for safety hazards identifications in traditional training classroom while another aspect of study include a virtual reality site visit. Results show that there is a significant difference in trainee's achievements for safety hazard identification assignments and examination between the training of hazard identification in a traditional construction site visit and mobile virtual reality construction site. Findings approve the hypothesis that learning is significantly higher at a virtual construction site rather than a construction site visit and traditional classroom. To conclude, a virtual reality learning environment offers other learning platforms for millennials.
