Immersive virtual worlds: Multi-sensory virtual environments for health and safety training
This research explored whether a combination of multisensory information (vision and sound combined with heat and smell) affects the effectiveness and validity of Occupational Safety and Health training initiatives, such as fire safety and evacuation in workplaces, or identification of hazardous chemicals in industrial sites.
The overall aim of this research was to produce evidence-based guidance for the development and use of virtual environments in engaging and effective training using cost-effective and accessible solutions.
