New Augmented Reality Safety Guide Sparks Interest for Metal Workers

Pro-Visual Publishing has proudly released their latest edition of the Augmented Reality (AR) Metal Manufacturing Industry Guide to Safety in partnership with the Australian Industry Group (AI). Thanks to the Corporate Partners of the Guide, it is possible for the Guide to be distributed free of charge to the Metal Manufacturing Industry.

The 1 metre x 1 metre printed Guide is designed to be displayed in a place that is accessible to all workers, in doing so it will help to aid in the promotion of health and safety and serve as a constant reminder to metal workers of potential hazards and threats that could jeopardise one’s safety in the workplace.

This year’s Guide features select topics that have been considered to be of the most importance to metal workers. The topics this year include, manual handling for transporting materials, welding fumes and their carcinogenic effects, tips to stay hydrated, industrial deafness and workplace traffic management.

An exciting feature of the Guide is the use of Augmented Reality (AR) technology, allowing the printed guide to come to life through digital technology. By simply downloading the free Pro-Vis AR app, users can use their smart device to scan over any AR capable content. In doing so, metal workers can access further resources like videos to use in induction and training workshops.

“I would like to thank all the sponsors of the Metal Manufacturing Industry Guide to Safety 2019/20. Their support has made it possible for the Guide to be distributed free of charge.” – John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
