Los Alamos National Laboratory purchased a Virtual Reality Crane Simulator to train potential new operators on how to safely and correctly perform hoisting, lifting, and rigging operations. The simulator is designed to train, test, and grade potential operators, potentially saving workers from injury and potentially saving millions of dollars in the event of a crane accident. The simulator proved to be so efficient as a training tool that the Laboratory requested and received approval from the State's Crane Council to use the simulator to substitute up to 100 seat hours.
