Virtual Tours & Virtual Reality Are Keeping Miners Safe in WA

How Virtual Tours & Virtual Reality is Keeping Miners Safe in Western Australia

With the rise of technology, there are more options than ever before when it comes to training miners and keeping them safe while they work. One of the most innovative and effective ways to do this is through virtual reality (VR). From increased memory retention to cost savings, VR has a lot to offer the mining industry in Western Australia. Let’s take a closer look at some of the ways VR is changing the mining game.

Virtual Tours for Inductions and Training

One of the most important aspects of miner safety is comprehensive induction and training programs. After all, if miners don’t know what they’re doing, they’re much more likely to get injured on the job. Virtual reality can be used to provide inductions and training that are both immersive and interactive. This means that miners will be able to learn more effectively and retain more information. Plus, VR can be used to simulate dangerous situations so that miners will know how to react if something goes wrong.

Improving Safety with VR Technology

In addition to providing better training, virtual reality can also be used to improve safety in other ways. For example, many mining companies are now using VR technology to create smart glasses that can help workers avoid hazards. The glasses use augmented reality (AR) to display information about the wearer’s surroundings. This information can include things like the locations of potential hazards, supervisors’ contact details, and emergency procedures.

Saving Money with Virtual Reality

Another big benefit of VR technology is that it can help mining companies save money. For example, rather than flying employees long distances for inductions or training sessions, companies can now use VR to provide those services remotely. This not only saves on travel costs but also reduces time away from work. In addition, VR can be used to create 3D models of mines that can be used for planning purposes. These models can help reduce overall costs by allowing companies to plan their operations more effectively.


As you can see, there are many ways in which virtual reality is changing the mining industry for the better. From improved safety procedures to cost savings, VR has a lot to offer mining companies in Western Australia. So if you’re looking for a way to improve your mine’s safety program, VR could be the answer you’ve been searching for.

Craig is a highly creative and talented photographer and videographer. I asked Craig to provide photos for a property I was selling as well as a 3D virtual tour. The photos were amazing and the 3D virtual tour allowed prospective buyers to have a full appreciation of the property and layout. The turnaround time was very quick and the price was excellent value for money. Most importantly though the quality of the work cannot be faulted and we were very pleased with the outcome. I would highly recommend Craig Wells for any photography or video work.
