Abstract The occupational safety and health issue addressed in this research dealt with the reduction of forklift injuries and fatalities through improved safety and injury prevention training technology by building a widely deployable, low cost, Virtual Reality forklift safety trainer (and similar powered industrial devices in the future). The specific goal is to significantly reduce the mortality and injury rate caused by forklift accidents by building an intuitive, low cost training platform that gives forklift operators the opportunity to study operating safety standards, rehearse them, and then be tested and evaluated on their understanding of them without the inherent risks of training on a real forklift, and with the benefit of getting the constructive and active cognitive experience of operating a forklift, which cannot be attained using video tapes or other training materials currently on the market.
