MOL to introduce VR training

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has developed a new virtual reality (VR) crew safety training system, using technology created by Japanese company Tsumiki Seisaku integrated into a pair of smart goggles.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The VR technology is applied to the replication of various operational scenarios for training purposes, and will be used for onboard training as well as being offered at shore based offices and training centres.

Initially, MOL says that the training content will focus on preventing accidental falls, a major cause of injuries, and will be expanded to cover other training areas in the near future.

“MOL will introduce the tool to more vessels while expanding the range of simulated experiences to provide more training in onboard safety,” the company said.{/mprestriction}
