Virtual reality (VR) techniques are becoming increasingly popular. The use of computer modelling, and visualization is no longer uncommon in the area of ergonomics and occupational health and safety. This book explains studies conducted in a simulated, virtual world make it possi...ble to test new solutions of designed workstations, offering a high degree of ease for introducing modifications and eliminating risk and work-related accidents. Virtual reality techniques offer a wide range of possibilities for people with disabilities and special needs assisting them in the process of adapting to workstations increasing cognitive abilities of elderly and using collaborative robots. The book includes testing protective devices, safety systems as well as numerical reconstruction of accidents at work to identify real causes of accidents. It will show the use of computer simulations in generic virtual environments and environments modelled on a target workstation to allow user adaptability. The book will provide examples of using virtual reality for training and improving workers' skills. With the use of virtual reality (VR) safety managers make it possible to train employees and test new solutions of designed workstations, offering a high degree of ease for introducing modifications and eliminating risk related to work.
