2018 Learning Technologies Awards
Atticus Digital is thrilled that our VR health & safety training app for EDF Energy has been shortlisted for another award. The 2018 Learning Technologies Awards – Best use of Simulations or Virtual Environments for Learning.
These awards recognise the commitment, enthusiasm and passion for learning technologies across the world, and to be to be shortlisted is an achievement to be proud of.
EDF Energy’s objectives were to improve Risk Perception training for Hinkley Point B power station employees following a number of accidents and lost time incidents. The solution was a virtual reality power station, where employees could interact in spaces where hazards are present, without the actual risk involved.
This ground-breaking approach to health & safety training has been a huge success, with 90% of staff enjoying the experience. 1,000 people have carried out the training so far and since implementation the number of incidents were halved, and costs reduced by 95%.
Finalists were selected by our independent judging panel of experts organised by the eLearning Network. Over 400 entries from 22 categories were whittled down to produce a robust 185-strong shortlist showcasing learning technologies.
The winners will be announced on 21 November.
