Virtual Reality EHS Tower Crane Training
Virtual Reality can allow a tower crane operator to develop competence through the practice of applying new skills and knowledge. Realistic conditions and scenarios in VR offer the operator an authentic experience without the need to be high up in the air. And, it reduces the need to remove critical machinery from productive service.
Our EHS Tower Crane VR training allows operators to practice their piloting skills in a simulated work environment. It gives them the look and feel of the real crane, and trainees must behave like they are on the real site.
Additionally, for learners training to operate big industrial machines and gain qualifications, our immersive EHS training can be used: trainees can effectively practice every conceivable configuration with different operational requirements.
Implementing VR for training crane drivers is a convenient and cost-effective training experience. Plus, it can improve safety, build an operator’s confidence and muscle memory, and decrease total training time.

Working with cranes creates several hazards in any construction site. Unsafe working practices may result in serious injuries, costly damage to buildings or materials, and even fatalities. Thus, when using tower cranes or any type of lifting equipment being aware of the risks involved is critical.
In order to perform a controlled and safe operation an operator must read and analyze complex information quickly. At the same time, numerous joysticks and a myriad of buttons and switches must be operated simultaneously. In addition, the operator must constantly adjust the crane and load’s speed, height, distance and more.
Virtual Reality technology can create realistic, fully immersive training environments. Above all, it can provide everything that training operators need to develop competency and practice within authentic worksite conditions.
Realistic situations are often difficult and expensive to reproduce in training sites. As a result, operators are rarely trained to cope with unusual lifting. There are also situations where extremely precise or hazardous handling is required, and even trained operators may want to “rehearse” the maneuver beforehand.
All these situations would enormously benefit from virtual reality training simulations.
Our VR Tower Crane Training was specifically designed as a solution to address the unique challenges associated with tower crane operation. Along with being a ROI, this Virtual Reality training offers effective, hands-on learning that features high-quality visual modeling.
Similarly, the authentic hardware and controls generate genuine realism. This unprecedented level of presence in our simulation means that throughout the training process crane drivers can gain real, transferable skills in a controlled, total immersion experience.
Our aim was to create an immersive learning experience dedicated to training both new and veteran operators.
Trainees can experience the climb, the height, and the end-to-end operation. Along with the dashboard displays all key elements, they can seamlessly look around in their virtual world just as they would in real life and onto the construction site below.
Crucially, the simulation is an exact replica of the crane’s operating system which enables trainees to practice complex lifts, and by the same token, they can develop awareness of the main hazards and the proper measures to avoid them.
Overall, trainees can develop competency in the operation of a tower crane safely and productively. They can understand the effect of the working radius on the lifting capacity of the crane, and practice in life‐threatening and accident‐causing conditions.
What’s more, learners can complete the same lift tasks more than once to get real-world practice without worrying about real-world consequences. As important, after each training session, a learner can receive feedback to evaluate their strengths and identify areas of improvement.
Lastly, to address the unique needs of any company our VR training can be easily customized. This can include other crane types, scenarios and environments. Further, we can design training courses that offer numerous scenarios for many types of cranes and with customizable content.
Imagine how VR training can also be an effective recruitment and screening tool.
