The course is of a “realistic” nature, it shows people to whom the trainees can relate and feel empathy with. The trainees are invited to apply the Life-Saving Rules in a real work environment.
The course is designed to be challenging, interactive, and rewarding. Learning by doing is the concept. All significant hazards associated with each of the Life-Saving Rules are covered. Based on a self-identification by the trainees, the course is automatically tailored to their needs.
For office workers, a broad high-level selection of relevant Life-Saving Rules is covered. Enough to be able to converse and intervene meaningfully with workers in the field.
Drivers get a selection of all rules they can encounter while driving, loading, and observing activities at sites they visit. All driving-related rules are covered in great detail covering many relevant situations that are causal for fatalities.
For field/operational workers all the rules are covered to a level that enables them to protect themselves and others in situations that historically were causal for most fatalities.
Available in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Dutch, Arabic, Hindi, Chinese (Hong Kong), Chinese (Mandarin), Azerbaijani, Finnish, Georgian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Vietnamese, Azeri, Korean, Thai.
After completing this course the trainees:
- Recall the Live-Saving Rules
- Can give simple examples of hazardous situations related to each of the presented Life-Saving Rules
- Can recognise the applicability of the presented life-Saving Rules in practical work situations
- Can recognise hazardous situations related to the Life-Saving Rules in practical work situations
- Can do timely and correct interventions in presented hazardous situations, 80% in the first attempt and 100% in following attempts as recorded for the last time the course was completed

Bonded through their common passion for developing safety strategies and technological innovations, Willem, Dick, and Bassam have established VIRSAT LLC which stands for Virtual Reality Safety Training. The three partners have developed this passion through their vast experience working for major oil and gas companies around the world and witnessing the dire need for an innovative learning process that would support companies in their HSSE policies and implementation.
They experienced real-life fatal incidents, studied the causation and underlying issues, and were material in Shell’s effort to change the safety performance to a best in class. They realized the positive impact of imagery and animations in the process of teaching and decided to focus their attention on building “transformational learning experiences” through the use of audio-visual animations and VR technology.
A whole suite of products is developed as a serious game, application, or interactive animation. VIRSAT’s mission is to provide support to companies in finding the best solution to implement their respective HSSE policies and in turn, provide a safer environment for their workers.
