YEA - Enhancing health and safety with 360 virtual reality (VR)

About this event

In this presentation, Madeleine will share her insights in her role in Health & Safety where she has identified an opportunity to bring innovation and digital tools into H&S through the use of 360VR. Despite not being an engineer, Madeleine saw the ability to apply design tools and frameworks when exploring the use of 360 videos to provide employees a realistic yet safe experience of high-risk work and construction sites from the safety of the office.

The key to bringing this idea to life was stakeholder mapping and engagement, followed by communication planning and change management. Madeleine was the lead of such a project from inception to execution, visiting sites internationally to plan, consult and film the VR videos, edit the videos and launch through an internal training platform. Through the design tool of stakeholder mapping, it was identified a variety of users and their skill levels to identify possible barriers and usability to issues.

After identifying these users, their experience and possible interaction with the product was mapped out in order to create the best experience for each user type. At the heart of design, is collaboration and the need to identify this early on through the use of a design tools thereby demonstrating that you can bring design to any challenge within the workplace.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How to identify opportunities for using digital solutions for new solutions or opportunities
  • The importance of stakeholder mapping and engagement, including change management
  • The ability to use design models in everyday work and projects
