Europreven increases awareness in training sessions and opens doors of major clients with Ludus' Virtual Reality

VR technology has proven to be a key differentiating factor for Europreven in securing major clients.

Europreven's training center includes classrooms where theoretical training is provided, enhanced with Ludus' Virtual Reality platform.

They also use VR to offer remote training, expanding their field of action to other countries.


+7.000 workers trained on-site within a year and a half:

group training sessions where one or several students use VR while the rest follow the training through a projector.


Trainings with Virtual Reality:

20 simulations y +500 exercises.


Remote training with VR:

+2.000 workers in countries like Italy, Saudi Arabia, Netherlands...

Achievements reached thanks to the implementation of Ludus' VR

  • It has been important in the aim of providing modern and quality training that helps differentiate from the competition.
  • It has helped present a more attractive product to potential clients, opening doors to large companies because of that differentiating element.
  • Usage and performance data: the tool measures the hours of use and exercises of each trainer, as well as the results obtained by the students.
  • They created a new standard of VR-based HSE training that raised the expectations of clients in the area, leading more HSE training companies to follow the same path.
How are they using Ludus' product

How are they using Ludus' product?

In 2023, Europreven already has 3 licenses and Virtual Reality equipments, which they use in their facilities to enhance training.

The licenses provide unlimited access to all content on the Ludus platform: working at heights, confined spaces, electrical risks, CPR, construction safety, risks with forklifts, fire extinguishing... for a total of 20 simulations and more than 500 exercises.

The challenge of modernizing and enhancing theoretical-practical health and safety training

At Europreven's branch in the Basque Country, they encountered certain challenges when it came to delivering preventive training, which prompted them to make the leap towards digitalization and modernization.

Those challenges were:

  • The predisposition and involvement of workers in theoretical training sessions were not always ideal. On occasions, employees attended these sessions solely out of obligation, and their awareness of the dangers of their positions suffered. This problem was particularly noticeable in remote training sessions.
  • Tools such as slideshows or videos were useful for conveying content but did not address the decision-making of the worker.
  • For obvious safety reasons, practical training sessions could not expose employees to certain risks or accidents to raise awareness, such as falling from heights.
In response to these challenges, the Europreven branch decided to modernize and enhance its risk prevention training. The first step was to incorporate Ludus' Virtual Reality platform.

2017: Innovation with Virtual Reality

Phase I - Enhance and digitize in-person theoretical training.

By incorporating Ludus' Virtual Reality tool into their training programs, Europreven aimed to reinforce theoretical training sessions, making them more educational and dynamic.

The simulations provided by Ludus allow working with scenarios and risk situations that are otherwise not possible. An example of this would be exposing workers to experiencing a fall from height or a forklift accident.

By using this platform as part of their theoretical training sessions, they managed to overcome two obstacles:
  • Worker awareness and sensitization about occupational hazards were enhanced by experiencing realistic situations. The possibility of making errors that would be fatal in reality and visualizing the consequences in the form of a virtual accident is an awareness-raising tool.
  • Workers could train their decision-making in these theoretical training sessions: equipping themselves with the appropriate PPE to work at heights, identifying risks on a construction site, choosing the right fire extinguisher to put out an electrical fire... They went from being 'spectators' to proactive participants in the training.

As trainers, Virtual Reality provides us with variety to enhance the training, making it more engaging and didactic, and preventing students from 'disconnecting'. When people try this product, they usually have a very positive impression of the work we do here.

The evaluation and satisfaction of workers trained with VR

The evaluations and satisfaction surveys of trained workers have improved significantly, indicating that employees prefer training sessions enhanced with VR.

In the evaluations following the training, we see that learners request that future training sessions be supported and reinforced with the Virtual Reality tool.

Phase II - The webinar format with VR: strengthening distance learning 

Another contribution of Virtual Reality was the possibility to energize and enhance remote training in webinar format. Through this modality, the trainer wears the goggles and shares image and sound with the students, who can follow the training on their screens.

In the space of a year and a half, Europreven trainers have remotely trained over 2,000 workers using VR. Students have been able to receive training even from other countries, such as Italy, Saudi Arabia, or the Netherlands.

Implementing Ludus' Virtual Reality in remote training provided several advantages to Europreven:
  • Possibility to expand their field of training to other countries, opening up new markets.
  • Conducting training sessions with workers located in distant locations, saving costs on trainer travel and VR equipment.
  • Training the decision-making of the students, something traditionally complex in remote training. The trainer can have the workers guide him through the simulation, making decisions for him, and show them the consequences of their mistakes in the form of an accident.
  • Breaking the monotony by introducing a playful, novel, and engaging component in these distance training sessions.

In remote mode, VR gives us the opportunity to interact more with the workers. The student is not just watching a video or slideshow; they are making decisions, making mistakes, and learning from them.

In addition to implementing Virtual Reality to digitize, enhance, and modernize their training, Europreven made another decision to take a leap forward. In 2018, they decided to tackle the creation of their own center dedicated to theoretical-practical training in occupational risk prevention.

Thanks to the creation of this center and the implementation of Ludus Virtual Reality, Europreven has managed to overcome the barriers it faced:

  • Perception of more dynamic and engaging training sessions: improvement in student satisfaction surveys, showing a predisposition and interest in technology and content.
  • Worker decision-making comes into play in theoretical training sessions, ceasing to be passive subjects.
  • Raising awareness among workers about the risks of their positions through virtual accidents: firsthand experience of the consequences of an error without being in real danger.
  • The remote mode with Virtual Reality introduces elements such as decision-making or dynamism, helping Europreven to expand its activity to other countries. .
