Advancing Warehouse Training: Virtual Reality Integration


At Broekman Logistics, we are committed to enhancing warehouse training through innovative methods.

One such initiative, implemented last year, involves the introduction of virtual reality (VR) training sessions for employees at our Venlo warehouse, with a specific focus on handling ADR goods (hazardous goods).

Under the guidance of Rachid Salhi, our Operations Excellence Manager, VR training has received accolades for its effectiveness and enjoyable nature. Annually, around 160 employees participate in these sessions, covering forklift and reach truck operations.

Rachid emphasises our dedication to excellence in chemicals: “Given our aim to excel in chemicals, we can simulate unsafe situations in VR simulations. All new employees within Broekman Logistics, regardless of their role as MHE drivers, must undergo these training sessions. Our incident form/process is also linked to this. The next step is to fully virtualise our current warehouse in this training.”

The Platform

The Virtual Warehouse Trainer by Playsight forms the cornerstone of our VR training program, providing a realistic and secure learning environment. Operators navigate hazardous scenarios while receiving immediate feedback to enhance their skills and safety awareness.

Real-time insights from the Virtual Warehouse Trainer enable us to track progress, identify areas for improvement, and maintain thorough training records. This data-driven approach ensures the efficiency and effectiveness of our training program.

The platform’s flexibility allows us to tailor training modules to meet the specific needs of Broekman Logistics. Recent studies have shown high retention rates of safety procedures post-training, validating the effectiveness of VR training in improving our workforce’s capabilities.

Innovative warehousing practices

In summary, VR training represents a significant step forward in our warehouse training practices. At Broekman Logistics, we are committed to enhancing workforce skills and safety awareness, paving the way for a safer and more efficient warehouse operation with the Virtual Warehouse Trainer.
