Labster’s virtual laboratory simulations will help employees master safe laboratory practices and protocols in a 3D virtual lab training environment. Train staff and users quickly, inexpensively, and with better outcomes–in a way that increases efficiency in the work space.

  • Engaging and interactive
  • Available online or in VR
  • Improve workplace safety

Explore Our Virtual Labs for Safety Training

Virtual lab with safety hazards

Lab Safety

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.

Biosafety

In the Biosafety simulation you will be presented with a hypothetical case where you will need to identify a potential bioterrorism agent that is classed as hazard group three microorganism.

Why Use Labster for Employee Safety Training?

collaborate

Boosts employee motivation

Studies have shown that employees reported a significantly higher enjoyment when virtual labs were used compared with a standard presentation

be bold

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)​

unlimited access to instrumentation

Cloud based platform

Labster is a cloud-based software as a service (SAAS) making it easy to deploy and scale

Realistic 3D environments

With virtual labs employees work with realistically simulated equipment to learn actual skills and practices

Sales and marketing organization

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

Scenario-Based Training

Research-Backed Results

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
