Explore Our Virtual Labs for Safety Training
Safety first! Always pay attention to potential hazards when you enter a lab. In this simulation, you will create a tidy and safe working environment by identifying and eliminating hazards in the lab.
In the Chemistry Safety lab, you’ll learn to identify the hazards posed by the different chemicals that you are using, which is a very important step in the planning of every experiment.
Managing Chemicals Safely
Find and interpret safety information in a laboratory context to implement safe working practices.
Introduction to Infectious Biological Samples
Recognise the potential pathogenicity of body fluids.
Recognizing Chemical Exposure and Personal Protection
Choose appropriate PPE for working with hazardous substances.
Introduction to Laboratory PPE
Choose appropriate PPE for working in different basic laboratory environments.
Handling Blood Samples
Recognize the hazards and risks of blood handling procedures.
Respond safely to fires in a laboratory envirronment.
Why Use Labster for Employee Safety Training?
Boosts employee motivation
Studies have shown that employees reported a significantly higher enjoyment when virtual labs were used compared with a standard presentation
Employees learn more, faster
Employees acquire twice as much knowledge per hour of training when virtual labs are compared to 1:1 training, standard e-learning and standard operating procedures (SOP)
Cloud based platform
Labster is a cloud-based software as a service (SAAS) making it easy to deploy and scale
Track employee growth
Identify employee strengths and weaknesses and track their improvement over time on the Labster dashboard
Realistic 3D environments
With virtual labs employees work with realistically simulated equipment to learn actual skills and practices
Better return on investment
With improved learning effectiveness and a low cost, Labster is the way to improve the ROI of your corporate training program
Sipros is a research project led by Labster, funded by the Innovation Fund Denmark. In this project, the objective was to explore virtual reality technology to increase productivity and occupational standards in the biotechnology industry.
Below is a sneak peak into the research study. It shows how Labster delivers significantly higher learning outcomes compared to traditional training methods.
Users gained on average twice as much knowledge per hour of training compared to other types of training
Participants gained on average twice as many skills per hour of training compared to other types of training
Participants reported significantly higher personal value was found in the VR training group
Participants enjoyed virtual labs more than a presentation
