TGG VR Hazard Identification
As a learning objective, measure of navigation ability, The Good Guys (TGG) Team Members are asked to identify a series of hazards through both a real world environment store and warehouse (2 Scenes, 5 areas each with 12 hazards) through a series of hot-spots and panels explaining the hazard in question. It is iOS, Android, Samsung Gear VR, Daydream, Web, HTC VIVE, Oculus Rift compatible, the immersive virtual reality technology has now been embedded into our safe design approach and hazard identification and risk control processes. I knew we needed to engage our Team Members in a more immersive way and so I thought a virtual reality system may help us to bridge that gap, and show the Team Members what the proposed designed would look like in as close as possible to a real world space, and then in turn reduce injuries that are happening in our stores.

Anyone giving financial product advice under an Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL) must satisfy ASIC’s RG 146 training standards.

The knowledge requirements vary depending on the RG 146 areas in which the adviser is giving advice e.g. securities, managed investments, superannuation etc. The skills requirements vary depending on whether the adviser is giving personal advice (requires skills) or general advice (does not require skills). New financial advisers meet the relevant RG 146 compliance training standards by satisfactorily completing relevant modules.
