Using virtual reality to improve electrical safety

Aller vers le contenu


The health and safety of our staff is integral to the business of Bouygues Energies et Services. To continue improving electrical safety practices, our innovation experts worked with the Health and Safety team and site managers to develop and roll out a new solution: virtual reality training for our technicians and operatives.

Innovative Solution

To immerse users in an interactive simulation, a virtual reality (VR) device is provided to accompany the theoretical training. The user can interact in real time with their environment. Their learning is enhanced through practice.

This virtual reality device can also be used in real-life situations as part of a safety check or as a reminder of good practice following a near miss. A first module has already been developed on training for electrical accreditation.

Each year, around 2,000 employees in France are trained towards electrical accreditation. As well as training, use by prevention officers can extend the system to workers and temps through the quarter-hour safety sessions.
