Safety managers must ensure that workers of all ages stay safe. However, millennials — those born between 1982 and 1997, and expected to make up half the world’s workforce by 2020 — pose a special challenge.
Because of their relative lack of seniority, millennials may be relegated to less desirable jobs, or to temporary assignments. This means that they may suffer from a deficit of training. To make matters worse, their lack of experience may mean they have not yet had time to develop a healthy respect for all the safety risks presented by their working environments. It’s not surprising that millennial workers appear to suffer more workplace injuries than other age groups. In hazardous industrial environments, the risk could be even greater.
However, there’s hopeful news. The simultaneous arrival of new safety technologies may well render this tech-savvy generation surprisingly easy to “sell” on safe job site habits.
American tech manufacturer, Honeywell, has announced that it is using a cloud-based simulation tool that uses a combination of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) to train plant personnel on critical industrial work activities.
Honeywell’s advanced training solution combines mixed reality with data analytics to create an interactive environment for on-the-job training.
It uses Microsoft’s HoloLens, the world’s first and only self-contained holographic computer, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets to simulate various scenarios for Honeywell’s C300 controller—such as primary failure and switchovers, cable and power supply failure—that train and test personnel on their skills.With as much as 50% of industrial plant personnel due to retire within the next five years, the Honeywell Connected Plant Skills Insight Immersive Competency is designed to bring new industrial workers up to speed quickly by enhancing training and delivering it in new and contemporary ways.
