Mobile Elevating Work Platform (MEWP) Virtual Reality (VR) Simulator
Advantage Learning Solutions is now offering a Mobile Elevating Work Platform (MEWP) skill testing experience using a virtual reality (VR) simulator. The MEWP VR Simulator provides a real-life experience where the operator can react and respond in a safe and controlled environment. This VR simulator is an excellent resource to assess an operator’s efficiency in operating equipment such as boom lifts and scissor lifts.
What is MEWP VR Simulator?
The Mobile Elevating Work Platform (MEWP) Virtual Reality (VR) Simulator was developed in North America and has achieved widespread adoption across the industry. It provides a safe environment for operators while keeping the learning experience hands-on and realistic. On a smaller scale, the physical unit resembles the basket of a boom lift. This unit can be adjusted to a height of 51.1 inches and a width of 32.3 inches. The simulator is equipped with all the required controls to operate an actual MEWP.
Why use a Virtual Reality Simulator?
Virtual Reality allows the operators to test their skills in different situations. The simulator offers a real-life experience of complex workplace situations in a safe environment that otherwise may not be available in real-life training. Some of the situations that you can practice in are entrapment, loading, and overhead crushing.
Eliminates the risk of injury or damage
Operating a piece of equipment isn’t easy! It requires training. The operator must know the potential risks and safety concerns before using the machine. With the VR simulator, operators can closely measure their skills in complex situations without causing any risks or damages.
