What is a MEWP Simulator?
The award-winning MEWP VR Simulator from Serious Labs brings this leading-edge technology to MEWP operators for assessment, training, and recertification.
With real-world machine controls and motion, the MEWP VR Simulator provides for immersive training and assessment simulation. The result is a powerful skill-building tool that enables operators to work more efficiently and safely, increasing capability, productivity and reducing the risk of accidents.
What can the MEWP Simulator do?
AESSESS COMPETENCE – Objectively measure and compare operators with our award-winning ESP Scoring™ system. Easy-to-use reports show who your best operators are, who needs more training, and what speciﬁc skills they need to focus on.
RISK PROFILING – Identify the risk each operator brings prior to placing them on the jobsite so you can make data-driven decisions about work assignments and monitoring.
TRAINING – Increase operators’ skills, safety, and efﬁciency with industry-leading curriculum. Each learner receives individualised training targeted at their speciﬁc areas for improvement.
PRACTICE CHALLENGING SCENARIOS – Practice for entrapment, overhead crushing, vehicle loading, and other challenging operations—all in a risk-free VR environment.
PORTABLE AND CONVENIENT – The VR simulator provides training anytime, anywhere. Upskill and assess operators without pulling them off the jobsite or tying up an actual MEWP.
