New augmented reality guide prompts body repairers about safety.
Pro-Visual Publishing in conjunction with the Institute of Automotive Mechanical Engineers (IAME), and the Australian Autoglass Industry Alliance (AAIA) has proudly released their latest edition of the Body Repairers Guide to Workplace Safety 2019/20. The new augmented reality (AR) guide prompts body repairers about workplace safety and is distributed free of charge Australia-wide.
The wall-mountable printed Guide is to be displayed in a place where workers will be viewing it daily. Every day, body repairers are exposed to a variety of chemicals, noise and manual tasks that can cause stress to the body over time. Knowledge on the correct personal protective equipment, hazardous chemicals and their potential effects and the correct way to perform tasks can help to alleviate the stressors of the job and maintain a safe workplace.
Together, Pro-Visual Publishing and the partnering Associations have carefully selected topics that address issues pertinent to the industry regarding health and safety, which include:
- Identifying the hazards of chemicals in the workplace.
- Manual Handling.
- Spray Painting in Spray Booths.
- Developing a Safety Management System.
- Safety Guidelines and Personal Protective Equipment.
The Guide features augmented reality, a digitised feature aimed at enhancing engagement and offers an aspect of interactivity. By simply downloading the free Pro-Vis AR app and scanning over any AR capable content, workers can access further safety information straight to their smart device, for example, videos and PDF files.
