Virtual Reality Lab Accidents
Goals & Objectives
To develop a series of virtual reality based laboratory
accidents that will impress upon participants the consequences of failing to
follow safety laboratory practices.
To instill participants with a vivid "memory" of laboratory
accidents, thereby prompting a lifelong habit of safe laboratory practices.
Ultimately to reduce the accident rate in the nation's
laboratories, including teaching, research, professional, and medical labs,
from the high school level to the industrial workplace.
The basic premise of this project is that people will remember
the experience of a laboratory accident much longer than any set of written
rules. By providing this opportunity for students and other laboratory
personnel to experience accidents in the relative safety of Virtual Reality it
is our hope to impress upon then the importance of always following safety
rules, and thereby to improve laboratory safety nationwide.
Background safety information and external references are also
provided in order to deliver a complete package.
