Extended Reality: A Game-Changer for Safety Training

Today’s leading organizations are using extended reality (XR) technology to train their employees and learners.

XR enables you to train intense safety scenarios in a fully-controlled and safe environment. And you get the benefit of immediate feedback and measurable data to track your users’ progress.

FreeRange XR puts users in real-life scenarios for fire suppression, fall protection, lock-out/tag-out and confined spaces. It makes training hands-on but accessible for first-time learners, and you’ll see immediate ROI in the data you can collect.
