To help workers in the construction industry identify fall hazards and learn how to create a fall protection system, the American Society of Safety Professionals released a virtual reality app that trains users in settings that mirror actual environments, without the associated dangers. Is this a step in the right direction to combat fall hazards?

I can understand the use of VR as a tool, but it takes a company that is committed to safety and has the resources to implement it (in other words, it's a step...just not one most companies can / will take). I personally feel that there are still too many companies out there who don't provide training or equipment to deal with fall hazards to think that VR will make a difference.
