The Full Story

RISE (Realistic Immersive Safety Education) is an innovative and cutting-edge approach to safety education in the construction industry. It utilizes virtual reality (VR) technology to create an immersive and realistic environment for hazard awareness training. By putting workers in simulated hazardous situations, RISE allows them to experience the potential dangers and consequences of workplace hazards in a safe and controlled setting. This allows workers to develop better hazard recognition and risk assessment skills, which can ultimately lead to a safer and more productive workplace. RISE is a game-changing solution that addresses the critical need for effective safety training in the construction industry, and has the potential to revolutionize the way that hazard awareness training is conducted.

RISE Construction Hazard Awareness is a certificate training course that takes you to an industrial site where you will be guided through the roles, equipment, hazards and rights you have to remain safe while working in construction. RISE takes the worker on a firsthand journey of the first day onsite at a large industrial construction project, experiencing everything from orientation and a site walkthrough to the identification of worksite hazards and reinforcement on how to handle them. The scenarios in RISE come from the imagination and real-work experience of the experts at Hinton Scaffold Solutions.
