Raymond celebrates National Forklift Safety Day with launch of next-generation Raymond Virtual Reality Simulator

A scalable virtual reality teaching tool features a wireless HTC VIVE Focus™ 3 headset for a more immersive learning experience

As a proud supporter of the ninth National Forklift Safety Day, The Raymond Corporation is committed to prioritizing forklift operator education and providing intelligent warehouse solutions that help customers create a culture of continuous improvement and boost overall facility well-being. Along with National Forklift Safety Day, The Raymond Corporation will be celebrating its 100th anniversary and launch of its next-generation Virtual Reality (VR) Simulator.

The first of its kind in the industry, Raymond’s award-winning VR Simulator is a flexible, scalable teaching tool that uses the latest immersive technology to bring new hires up to proficiency more quickly and to continually expand operator skills for reduced turnover. The updated VR Simulator is designed for optimum usability and performance with a smaller, lighter case for easier maneuverability and setup, as well as the award-winning HTC® VIVE Focus 3 wireless all-in-one VR headset for enhanced operator performance, comfort, and longer immersive sessions. The simulator uses training modules that build on themselves to help operators reach higher proficiency levels faster and feel more confident before reaching the warehouse floor.
