beneficial they felt the experience was and have shown interest in creating VR content for their safety imperatives.”

In this project, we were approached by a large Australian retailer and logistics company to create an immersive training series for their forklift operators.
The client’s goal was to use virtual reality to streamline and improve training outcomes for forklift operators. Ultimately, VR would enable employees to experience and internalise Forklift operation and safety practices without additional hazards. Operationally, this training would also increase efficiency as they would no longer need to take forklifts out of service for extended periods of time.
Working with the client to ensure relevant and authenticity, Ignition Immersive created an interactive training series consisting of three scenarios. This project utilised the team’s skills at Ignition, as it required not only finding a way to stabilise the VR camera while on a moving forklift, but also stitching the footage, and extensive VFX processing to remove the driver.
The final product is a first-person perspective series, deployed through the Oculus Go headset, with viewers using the controllers to select the answers throughout the videos.
From start to finish, this project took approximately two months.
In 2019 we created VR Training Modules for multinational food and agri-business Olam.
Olam’s goal was to improve safety in their orchards by using immersive Virtual Reality training. By wearing the headset, employees could experience a simulation of the jobsite and hazards, and what it looked like for things to go right – and wrong.
Working with Olam, we designed four interactive, simulated film scenarios educating employees on safe driving practice, drug use, PPE and impact of mobile phone use.
- 97% of the employees who have so far undertaken the modules
believe that the training was effective – and interesting
- 70% found that the driving module was the most impactful
- “This training will stay relevant for 10 years”
