University makes game to teach workplace safety

CONSTRUCTION site survival is the aim of a "game" developed by University of NSW academics Associate Professor Sidney Newton and Russell Lowe.

The Situation Engine is a virtual reality training platform designed to reduce accidents on all types of building sites.

Wearing a special VR headset, workers navigate life-threatening scenarios by navigating through 3D building sites.

The designers replicated the details of Australian construction sites to make the software realistic.
