Can Simulation Replace On The Job Training?

 Abstract:

Simulation is rapidly becoming recognised as an integral part of the future of training in the resources industry. From heavy equipment, to rescue, to maintenance, we will see this technology being increasingly used to safely prepare our workforce for a variety of roles. Certainly there are examples of incidents where simulation training can be attributed to the avoidance of disastrous results. But how do we ensure confidence in the safety outcomes of simulation training in our industry?
