Manual Handling is the leading cause of injuries and workplace compensation claims in the workplace, with spine and back injuries being the most common. Our VR Manual Handling experience teaches your employees the best and safest Manual Handling practices that should be applied in the workplace. The experience will have employees apply the knowledge they learn, using what they know to improve a worksite in action.
Manual Handling puts the Hierarchy of Control front and centre, prompting employees to constantly think about it and apply their understanding of it as they complete tasks throughout the experience.
Our Manual Handling experience shows a workplace in action, with detailed animations both before and after safe work practices have been applied, letting employees see the impact that their changes will make in real time.
Participants in Manual Handling VR are awarded points instead of a standard assessment system, increasing engagement and making the learning experience more fun, exciting and memorable.

Easily the most engaged and energised I’ve seen our teams in a training environment.
Fantastic addition to our training curriculum. Great engagement and buy-in from our people.
The future of training and learning in the workplace.
Pretty awesome to train inside and anytime we want. Very cool and new way to learn.
Exciting tech and a great tool to use for us moving forward. Training our nationwide teams with virtual reality is going to play a big role for us.
I believe the use of Virtual Reality for training is a different way of learning, and something that will be remembered for longer.
You can get a basic conception of what’s going on before a person’s put into a hazardous situation… You get a virtual feeling without having to go up there in that machinery.
This technology will eliminate the need for flights, accommodation and food incurred by sending staff away for training or flying trainers to remote areas - saving the council and ratepayers a significant amount of money.

Interestingly, we found by the third VR experience, regardless of age, all groups had gained the same amount of competency in using VR. Younger generations may be faster to initially pick up the coordination and techniques required due to being exposed to gaming consoles and similar technology at a younger age but longer term, age was no barrier to successful VR training.
The experiences themselves take 20-25 minutes to complete, from adjusting to the headset, to cleaning it afterwards. It is recommended to allow 45 minutes for the full process and experience.
The subscription price includes unlimited use. Based on the 45 minute per training recommendation, with a single headset, typically, you’d be able to conduct up to 8-10 experiences in a single day. That’s an opportunity for nearly 300 training experiences per month.
All our subscriptions are month-to-month. Cancel any time.
Our experiences currently support Oculus Go and Oculus Quest. If your organisation uses a different headset, please contact us for custom build pricing options.
If you choose to cancel your subscription, you’ll need to return your headset within 7 working days in the pre-paid post bag provided.
From the time of payment, please allow 8-10 days for shipping. If you have your own headset, we can deploy the training for you remotely within 1-2 working days.
Yes, this can all be deployed for you remotely.
