Construction industry in the United States produces high casualties and has the highest number of injuries than any other industry with fall having the highest percentage. Prior research has been done to evaluate the effect of the conventional safety training, showing low effectiveness due to low levels of engagement. Novel approaches have explored techniques such as 360-degree panorama, storytelling techniques, and virtual reality to improve safety training with varying degrees of success. However, no studies have combined the benefits of these techniques into a single training methodology. This research centers in the development and testing of a safety training platform using augmented 360-degree panorama, storytelling techniques, and virtual reality to create engagement and increase motivation during fall prevention training.
