This project will develop a practical tool, Immersive Virtual Reality (IVR), to improve roofers’ safety training and as a result, improve their safety awareness and reduce work-related accidents.  Funding will pay for software development, testing and evaluation, training and research, and the training station will be available to construction companies to use to improve safety performance of their roofers.
