On May 7, 2019, GBCA members gathered for a Technology Lunch & Learn: Making Safety Training Safer with Virtual and Augmented Reality. Held at the Carpenters Health & Welfare Fund, the event featured presentations and demonstrations from Shawn MacDonald, Safety Director for Superior Scaffold Services, and Daniel Stein, Product Manager of Virtual Reality for NextWave Safety. The event was moderated by Rob Smith, Supervisor of Instruction from the Carpenters NJ/MD/DC Apprentice Training Funds.
The event provided attendees a chance for hands on experience with the different technologies, and ask questions about how they could be used in the field, as well as more broadly for the industry.
Thanks to all who attended, and to Keystone + Mountain + Lakes Regional Council of Carpenters for hosting us for this event!
