Virtual scenarios allow employees to be trained safely

Simulations put trainees in realistic scenarios without disrupting operations

Many companies come to Louisiana to set up complex operations, resulting in millions of dollars of investment in highly-specialized equipment. The LED FastStart team not only helps recruit individuals to operate that equipment, they also conduct virtual training that provides a safe and efficient way to give new hires hands-on experience.

By going virtual with their training, companies don’t need to worry about shutting down operations and delaying the workflow. That’s extremely valuable to every company’s bottom line.

ExxonMobil’s Baton Rouge Refinery is a prime example of how virtual training maintains operations while providing a safe environment for its employees to master complex tasks.

At ExxonMobil’s polyolefins expansion in Baton Rouge, an LED FastStart augmented reality/virtual reality training program helps new and existing employees safely meet performance requirements. 

With an eye towards safe operations, ExxonMobil also recently produced a training video with LED FastStart on the importance of workplace safety. Click here to watch the video.

“Virtual reality training has been a big step forward in how we train our workforce. The ability to create memorable experiences in a virtual space creates efficiencies. It helps us create a safer work environment for our construction teams, and helps us be very creative and the experiences that we can give new employees.”
-Stephanie Cargile, ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Public & Government Affairs Manager
“To end up with this list of VR modules and the training that has provided us has been unbelievable.”
