Ramirent launches 'TwinSite' virtual training aid
19 March 2019
Ramirent has introduced what it calls Ramirent TwinSite, a virtual reality construction site to be used as a training and communication tool to promote safety, sustainability and efficiency.
TwinSite gives users virtual reality (VR) guides on issues such as product choices, safe handling of equipment and health risks, including quartz dust. Ramirent said the system improves the understanding and recall of information and increases the motivation to ensure effective prevention measures are taken.
